The Lagos State Government has said that despite the lockdown as a result of COVID-19, residents of the state will continue to enjoy access to livestock at affordable cost.
Thus, the government has created a Meathub, a meat-sharing platform for Lagosians.
The Project Director, Linda Obi, while unveiling the platform said: “Meathub was established to bridge the gap between livestock lovers and access to clean, traceable, fit for consumption, and highly affordable quality livestock.
“This meat sharing platform allows individuals the opportunity to purchase and consume livestock that has been processed under the highest hygiene standards.
“This one-stop digitised meat sharing platform has products ranging from beef (bull) to chevon (goat meat) and chicken, all freshly slaughtered.
”Meathub has devised a cost-effective doorstep delivery method to customers across the State, Obi stated.
“This platform has been established to change the way we buy and handle meat.
“We aim to provide traceable, fit-for slaughter animals that are fit for consumption to all individuals across the State and beyond.”
