A restructuration plan has been elaborated, which aims to save the Mauritius Meat Authority (MMA) from big financial problems as this organisation is currently being faced. The Office of Public Sector Governance (OPSG) will enable MMA to generate four millions rupees annually (94.3 thousands euros) for a four-year period.

The OPSG, which operates under the aegis of the Prime Minister's Office, has made some recommendations in order to help MMA to overcome this financial crisis. The construction of a new slaughterhouse, the development of cold storages and refrigeration's facilities as well as the introduction of an appropriate legislation to monitor the movement of animals and the dissuasion of illegal slaughtering are among the other measures recommended to relaunch MMA.

This organisation is experiencing some financial difficulties since 2006, with exception of 2008 and 2009. The MMA is facing some deficits of approximately thirteen millions rupees (306.5 thousands euros) for the financial year 2013, despite an annual subvention of three to five millions rupees (70.7 to 117.9 thousands euros). The number of heads slaughtered has increased from 2490 in 2007 to 2718 tons at present, for all types of meat, as being reported by Le Matinal newspaper.
