Poultry-feed makers asked to vacate city

Three out of the five poultry feed operations in Lahore, Pakistan have told the government that they will be moving out of the city.

The Pakistan government has been asking the feed manufacturers to move away from the densest city in Pakistan as they were polluting the environment and causing a bad odour in the air.

Makhdoom Poultry Protein, Mehar Poultry Waste Processing, Qasim Poultry Protein, Asia Poultry Feed and Idrees Poultry Waste Processing have also asked the government to issue them NOCs to import modern machinery in order to process their products in an environmentally friendly manner.

Punjab environment departments have already served notice to the owners of the units for violating environmental laws, and residents of nearby housed were pleased when the units were asked to shut down. However, the owners had their units de-sealed after 24 hours of them being sealed and started business again. Asia Poultry Protein, Mehar Poultry Protein and Makhdoom Poultry Protein are the units that have assured the government that they will move out of the city.
