The Wayanad-based Brahmagiri Development Society (BDS), which is an initiative to help farmers in meat production, dairy and agriculture, is planning to open 1000 outlets in Kerala to sell its products in the next financial year. The society aims to help farmers in the state to achieve self sufficiency in meat production.

The society opened its 96th outlet in Kochi on Monday. “We have covered districts up to Kochi till now and would like to extend activities to Thiruvananthapuram in another year,’’ said P Krishna Prasad, BDS chairman and former CPM MLA. The stalls will sell its specialty Malabar meat comprising, beef, chicken and mutton products and other agricultural foods produced by BDS.

The society also aims to increase its income by over three times in the current fiscal to Rs 54 crore. In 2017-18, it earned a total income of around Rs 16 crore, nearly 80% rise from the previous year. Prasad said that the society uses the services of a total of 13,000 farmers. It sells the calves and chicken to the farmers for rearing and buy them back at a price by excluding middlemen.

BDS has set up a large multi-species abattoir in Wayanad for its meat production facilities. In the last state budget Kerala government had sanctioned Rs 10 crore to BDS to increase its meat production facilities. BDS is planning to open similar abattoirs in several other districts in Kerala.
