August 6 2015, Gelephu. The Sarpang Yarkey Piggery Co-operatives (SYPC) opened a new piggery co-operative shop at Gelephu market. It is intended to make local pork available in the commercial hub. The shop is the second sale-outlet for the group. This outlet will cater for both the whole-sale and the retail of pork and fish produced by its Co-operative members at a competitive price. Currently SYPC has 55 members who are involved in piggery and fishery activities.
Mr. Anand Rai, Group Chairman is hopeful that the sale from Gelephu out-let will cater for larger customers compared to the Sarpang outlet which is located in the sparsely populated area.
The Opening was attended by Dzongkhag Livestock Officer Sarpang, Program Director NPiDC Gelephu, Official form BAFRA, meat vendors of Gelephu and SYPC members.
The customers and meat vendors looking for domestic pork can directly contact the Paro Meat shop located in the Lower market Gelephu.
