በኢትዮጵያ የስጋ ማቀነባበሪያ ኢንዱስትር ታርክ በግንባር ቀደምትነት የሚነሳው የሲዳማው የማልጋ ወንዶ የስጋ ማቀነባበሪያ ፋብርካ እና ስለ ኣጠቃላይ የስጋ ማቀነባበርያ  ኢንዱስትር  ጥቂት ያንብቡ

...I came back in 1983 and the government gave me a job instantly at Melge Wondo Meat Factory in Sidama as deputy general manager with a 710 birr monthly salary. This factory took the lion’s share of the country’s meat production. Mostly the cattle came from the  Borena area. The plant not only slaughters  cattle but also provides vaccination, follow their dietary needs and sell live animals. The country was also exporting meat at the time. Our meat was exported to Libya, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and other countries as well. We were famous for our pre-packaged cuts such as silverside, top side and sirloin. A slaughtered whole sheep and also the organs of the sheep such as liver, heart, kidney was sent to various countries. In addition, processed meat such as boiled meat with pouch was sent to Japan. Corn beef used to be shipped to Italy and England. Raw meat was exported to Arab nations but it was not possible to do so to western countries. One of the occasion I remember was when Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam went to visit Korea. He took with him a huge amount of hump meat packed in mesob. The Koreans love, actually worship, hump meat. I am sure they still reminisce about that.  After working for some time at Melge Wondo, I was transferred to Kombolcha Meat Factory (S.O.P.R.A.L.). This used to be owned by the Italians but was later appropriated by the Derg regime. In this factory there was an amount of 500 tons of meat which was exported to Korea per annum. In addition, we became the main suppliers of packed foods such as ground stew beef (minchet abish) and vegetables for the Ethiopian military camps....ለተጨማሪ ንባብ ከታች ይጫኑ።
