25-11-2013

Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Hussein Hage Hassan, inaugurated, last week, a new milk processing center located in the village of Bazalieh, in Northern Beqaa in the presence of the director of the rehabilitation of animal production sector at the FAO, Dr. Shazli Kayyouli and the head of the agriculture directorate in the Bekaa, Ali Raad.
In his keynote address, Hassan noted that this project is part of a series of projects initiated in different localities such as Zahleh and the Western Bekaa in order to produce milk and dairy products with higher quality specifications so as to ensure, as a result, better yields and profits for farmers.  The Minister also noted that his Ministry has been working for the past 4 years on vaccination campaigns in order to protect milk production and cows. He added that these centres are equipped to carry out lab tests prior to milk production and so as to increase trust in the products and set the right prices.
