A new software which will allow Pakistani meat processors and exporters to trace the origin, processing and distribution of meat in the country was launched last week. The software launched by the US-Pakistan Partnership for Agricultural Market Development (AMD) and funded by USAID will also help prevent the spread of animal diseases and enhance biosecurity.
