Q. What are the meat shop laws?

A. A meat shop refers to a shop that does not kill the animal but sells the meat. There are rules that regulate such outlets. The Bureau of Indian Standard rules deal with the basic requirements for a stall for sale of meat of small and large animals. This is the norm to be followed for licensing and regulating the sale of meat, and maintenance of hygienic conditions of the stall. It states:

  • All meat stalls can only be set up in designated places, as a unit of a meat market and shall be located at a place away from vegetable or other food markets.
  • A block shall consist of a number of meat stalls and shall be enclosed within compound walls which barricades the entry of dogs, cats, birds, etc., into the block.
  • Each block shall be provided with a potable water storage supply tank with taps to facilitate withdrawal of water by meat stalls.
  • Each stall shall have a water tap, potable water supply, electricity and proper hygienic sewage disposal facilities.
  • A meat stall shall consist of a meat preparation room, sales counter or ante-room and covered passage in front or a verandah for customers.
  • The meat preparation room may be of minimum 3.75m x 3m x 3m for small animals and 4.5m x 4.5m x 4.5 m for large animals depending on the stock.
  • Screened ventilators shall be provided near the ceiling for facilitating cross ventilation.
  • The meat shall be free from undesirable odour, smoke, dust or other contaminants. All knives and tools shall be of stainless steel.
  • Care should be taken that no direct sunlight falls on the dressed carcasses.
  • The room shall be made suitably fly-proof and provided with fly-traps.
  • The floors of all the rooms shall be of such construction that easy washing and cleaning with water is possible.
  • A covered passage protected from the rain and sun shall be provided in the meat stall for customers.
