M4C and Renata sign an agreement to guarantee the quality of medicines for livestock
Making Markets Work for the Jamuna, Padma and Teesta Chars (M4C) has signed an agreement with Renata Animal Health to ensure quality medicines for livestock in the arctic char region of northern Bangladesh.
The partnership agreement was signed on Thursday January 20 at Renata’s headquarters in the capital, a press release said.
The M4C project is commissioned by the Embassy of Switzerland and the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives of the Government of Bangladesh and implemented by Swisscontact Bangladesh.
This collaboration will allow Renata to expand its animal health and nutrition products to remote areas of Arctic char with the facilitation of M4C.
This will help increase the availability of quality livestock inputs such as medicines, vaccines and other livestock supplements. In addition, the capacity of char-based farming service providers (LSPs) will be developed and will ensure that marginalized char farmers obtain services through LSPs.
The project is expected to create a paradigm shift in livestock husbandry practices in the Arctic char region.
It emphasizes cost-effective and robust animal husbandry and husbandry practices for which the availability of quality animal health products is crucial, especially for the distant Arctic char markets of Bangladesh.
Md Sirajul Hoque, Director, Animal Health Division, Renata, and Md Abdul Awal, Team Leader, M4C signed the partnership agreement on behalf of their respective company and project.
Dr. Himel Chakma, Group Product Manager, Animal Health Division, Renata Limited and Yasir Arafat, Director, Partnerships and Grants, M4C were also present.
