The purpose of this handbook is to support national food safety authorities and food chain stakeholders in promoting good practices among slaughterhouse workers at abattoirs of Vietnam. The target audience are slaughterhouse workers, slaughterhouse owners, national food safety authorities, veterinaries, and policymakers.
There are five good practices designed for workers in slaughterhouse mentioned in this handbook. Each key message is accompanied with detailed explanation and real-life pictures for ‘how-to-do’ illustration.
