BMC gets greenlight to export beef to UAE

It was also revealed that long term plans are to have the Maun plant separated from BMC’s commercial performing entities; Lobatse abattoir, cannery, tannery and Francistown abattoir while providing Ngamiland farmers with a market for their livestock. “It does so without weighing down on BMC’s performing assets,” Gare added.
