Investors Eye Yangon for Poultry Processing Plant

Local and foreign investors are conducting a feasibility study on a proposed poultry processing plant in Yangon Region, U Maung Maung Soe, Mayor of Yangon, told Yangon Regional Parliament on September 13.

“Poultry processing plants can’t be built near residential housing. We need to take that into consideration as well as other factors such as: will it have access to water, can the wastewater from the plant flow into a stream, creek or other water resources, is it possible to build water treatment plant for the wastewater?” he said.

Currently Yangon City Development Committee has opened a poultry market in Hlaing Thar Yar Township, Insein Township, Kyimyindaing Township, and Mingalar Township where live poultry transported from across the country are sold. It also allows poultry processing in the city where residents don’t object.

“Now, poultry are slaughter dipping into boiling water—it’s animal abuse. Meats processed this method are prone to infection and diseases. We need poultry processing plant to produce healthy food,’’ U Yan Shin, a lawmaker from Yangon Regional Parliament, said.

Indeed, maintaining a clean processing plant is very important, not only for the plant workers, but also for the end consumer. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations provides a handout showing best practices for small-scale and large-scale operations, and covers things like bleeding the animals, proper washing, and preparing for sale.

Yangon has approximately seven and a half million people, and they are estimated to consume around 60,000 chickens daily. That would be approximately 21.9 million chickens per year. Tyson Foods — the world’s largest poultry producer — is an American company that produces 1.89 billion chickens a year. In a list of the worlds top 50 producers, even the smallest company produces 168 million chickens a year.

Tyson Foods recently broke ground on a new processing plans in western Tennessee. The project costs approximately $300 million, will provide jobs for 1,500 locals once the new complex begins operations, currently expected to be in late 2019.
