By Our Staff Reporter

VIJAYAWADA, AUG.19. The Gannavaram Bacon Factory, a division of Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, launched `ready to cook pork' and `minced pork' here on Thursday.

Launching the new products, the head of the Department of Livestock Products Technology, M. Ranganadham, said the cook-ready pork was a combination of bacon and ham, cleaned and cut into smaller pieces for the convenience of the consumers.

The product had the good taste of bacon and the high nutritive value of ham. Minced pork, the other new product, was most suitable for quick preparation of cutlets, nuggets and sausages.

Prof. Ranganadham said the Gannavaram Bacon Factory was already marketing pork, bacon, ham and undercuts through its authorised dealers. Soon all its products will be available in all branches of the Vijaya Krishna Super Bazar.

The products of the Bacon factory are available through its dealers in Visakhapatnam, Kakinada, Guntur, Tenali, Machilipatnam, and Nellore in Coastal Andhra and in Kanchikacherla, Jaggaiahpet, Kankipadu, Nuzvid and Hanuman Junction in Krishna district. In Vijayawada, the factory products are sold in shops located in Labbipet near the Veterinary Hospital, Benz Centre (road next to Varun Motors), Chuttugunta and Ramavarapadu circle from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

More products soon

The livestock products technology department was sanctioned Rs. 20 lakhs for development of new products and more products would be launched by the year-end, he said. Prof. Ranganadham said the bacon factory sold the products for a uniform price, but the dealers are permitted to sell at a higher price taking into consideration variable factors like cost of transportation, local competition and other overheads like rent of shop, etc.
