New regulations will be implemented to stop pig farmers from sending livestock to illegal abattoirs, resulting in low quality pork, said Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Chua Tee Yong.

Licences for farms found to have traded or supplied low quality or “rubbish” pork or those who had sent their pigs to illegal abattoirs would be revoked.

New health certificates would only be issued to farms that could prove that their pigs were slaughtered at legal abattoirs.

Chua said nearly half a million pigs were slaughtered in 2009 and 2010 by illegal abattoirs that charged about RM14 compared to the RM26 charged by licensed ones.
