The Mariental Farmers Meat Market has been officially opened.
The meat market is expected to process 55,000 sheep in 2023 and 100,000 to 170,000 sheep in 2024.
By 2025, a full production capacity of 280,000 sheep is envisioned.
This, according to O&L Group CEO Wessie Van Der Westhuizen, will necessitate additional investments.
Since the resumption of commercial operations in October 2022, over N$75 million has been paid to sheep producers between October 2022 and June 2023.
