More steaks and now new leathers. In Cuba, business at the new El Tablón slaughterhouse is proceeding apace after its inauguration. The prospect of building a tannery alongside the livestock industry is on the horizon.
The new El Tablón slaughterhouse
In Cuba, the new El Tablón plant is operating at full capacity. As reported by the agency acn.cu, the slaughterhouse opened a year ago in the province of Cienfuegos expects to process 450 tons of meat within the year. This way, it will be able to enter new markets. The plant has a sanitary platform for slaughtering animals in compliance with hygiene measures.
Likewise, it respects the standards for meat processing, packaging, labelling and freezing, in order to deliver products in optimal conditions. Also thanks to the good results, the company developed the project for the construction of a tannery next to the slaughterhouse. The new plant would allow the processing of cowhide and other animals, such as sheep and goats. Javier Alejandro Feijoo Caraballo, the company’s marketing manager, assured that the tannery will be able to make a range of products with these tanned leathers: saddles, stools, boots and similar saddlery items.
