Dubai: Residents of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Al Dhaid can now order for home delivery of meat through Dubai Municipality’s Al Mawashi app.
The Abattoirs Section of Dubai Municipality launched the app in partnership with Emirates Livestock and Meat Trading Company for home delivery of Australian livestock after sacrifices during last Eid Al Adha. It recorded 4,000 transactions during Eid.
Following the positive response, Hussain Nasser Lootah, director-general of Dubai Municipality, relaunched the app with new features on the sidelines of the 1st Dubai International Animal Feed and Pet Food Conference that concluded on Thursday.
The app now features images, types and prices of the cattle and shows the options of different types of processing methods of the meat, Ali Tahir Al Hammadi, head of the Abattoirs Section, said in a press release.
Through the app, people can do pre-booking of sheep or cows available at the Cattle Market in Dubai. Customers can see and choose from the available sheep or cow line-up and pay for it online and then get it slaughtered by the Dubai Abattoir. Customers can receive the meat easily and conveniently away from the crowd at the abattoir.
By relaunching Al Mawashi in a much wider level, Al Hammadi said, the municipality aims to ease services and save people’s time as well as deliver high-quality meat at the doorsteps of the residents, including people who stay in Sharjah, Ajman and Al Dhaid.
“Now, in the revised app, public can make a modified request for removing the bones from the meat and processing it and delivering in whole or in parts at home anywhere in Dubai. Customer can also request from the meat market in the abattoir to deliver certain kilos of meat after processing it in full and deliver at home, and all these through the smart mobile app, Al Mawashi,” he said.
