To satisfy the ever increasing demands and the stringent requirement of its clients for quality and safe products, ELFORA is constantly engaged in developing and upgrading abattoir facilities and procedures of slaughtering and processing of chilled/frozen carcasses of beef, mutton and goat meat. Cold truck fleet of vehicles is available to transport the carcasses to the pre-shipment waiting and loading point, at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, or Djibouti Port for export to the Middle East countries.
Two ELFORA abattoirs have fulfilled hygienic standards and are approved and registered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as "Export Standard" abattoirs. Two of ELFORA abattoirs namely Methara & Debrezeit are pioneering in the implementation of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system, following the institution of Good Manufacturing and Good Hygienic Practices. As part of ELFORA's latest development in safety control assurances and product quality improvement, the veterinary laboratory facilities are setup at its export abattoirs to perform various bacteriological examinations and tests. All meat and meat product shipments are accompanied by international sanitary certificates issued by the veterinary authorities of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Moreover, slaughtering activities for Muslim customers are based on Halal system. Certification of Halal is provided from the accredited authorities of the Ethiopian Islamic Affairs Supreme Council. All Halal certificates are authenticated by the relevant Embassies of the importing countries in Ethiopia.
