Following the trending meat expose, retail chain Naivas has issued a guarantee that their meat is safe for human consumption.
Naivas Chief Commercial Officer Willy Kimani led journalists on a tour to their Mombasa road based distribution centre where meat is stored and processed for supplying to various outlets.
Kimani has assured Naivas customers on the safety of their meat, adding that the retailer has a state-of-the-art cold room storage facility hence there is no need to use chemicals for preservation.
“We do not condone or encourage the use of any chemical substances to preserve the meat sold in our butcheries across all our 53 stores,” he asserted.
Kimani said the retailer has invested heavily to ensure that they have a cold room in all their outlets, and a fleet of cold transport trucks to ensure that all their meat is preserved at the right temperature to ensure quality.
The Ministry of Health has also directed County Governments to scale up and prioritize the implementation of health measures that are aimed at safeguarding the public health safety.
