Lagos State Government, through the Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency, HEFAMAA, shut down 20 health facilities in the month of January for non-compliance with regulatory standards.

The Executive Secretary, HEFAMAA, Dr Abiola Idowu, made the disclosure after a recent enforcement exercise carried out by the agency, stressing that the State government remains committed to sustaining the fight against the engagement of unqualified personnel in health facilities and will continue to insist on a suitable environment for the dispensation of medical care for promotion and maintenance of good health.

Idowu warned that the government will not tolerate any form of illegal health practices in the State, saying that “health security, an integral part of public security is the primary duty of the government”.

Dr Idowu urged all health facility operators across the State to abide strictly by the standards of HEFAMAA to avoid being sanctioned.

Commenting on the activities of the agency in the previous year, she disclosed that a total of 309 facilities were shut down in 2019 for lack of compliance to stipulated standards, adding that some of them had been reopened because they corrected the infractions and promised to abide by set standards.

Idowu revealed that HEFAMAA is poised to becoming a health regulatory agency that will effectively promote quality healthcare delivery to Lagosians by enhancing its capacity to carry out accreditation and effective quality assurance monitoring of all health facilities in the State, increasing public awareness to sensitise critical stakeholders and the public as well as improving collaboration with stakeholders and the public with a view to improving quality of healthcare delivery in Lagos.

While encouraging owners of health facilities to carry out their operations in accordance with set standards, the Executive Secretary maintained that all new or intending operators must register with the agency through its website at www.hefamaa.lagosstate.gov.ng before commencing medical practice and implored existing registered operators to ensure prompt renewal of their certificates to avoid being sanctioned.

She, therefore, called on members of the public to continue supporting and cooperating with the State government in its fight against quackery and illegal operation of facilities by reporting those behind such acts to relevant government agencies to safeguard the health and well-being of the citizenry.

“I will advise Lagosians to be cautious and desist from patronising uncertified service providers and if you suspect foul play or notice illegal operations in your community, do not hesitate to contact HEFAMAA for prompt action”, she stated.

Next Meats, Purveyor of the World’s First Plant-based Yakiniku Meats, Is Now in Singapore

The Tokyo-based startup makes its debut in the alt-protein hotspot of Singapore

 

  • Next Meats has collaborated with Aburi-EN to deliver two new meal sets
  • Made with soybean proteins, the Kalbi contains no chemical additives or animal ingredients


SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 14 April 2021 - Next Meats, a purveyor of the world's first plant-based yakiniku meats, is making its debut in the alternative protein hotspot, Singapore! The Japanese alternative meat company has collaborated this time with popular Japanese restaurant Aburi-EN, which will offer two types of set meals using the NEXT Kalbi (boneless short rib) for the very first time. Made largely from soy proteins, the NEXT Kalbi contains double the amount of protein and half the fats than that of regular meat and even more, it does not contain any chemical additives or cholesterol due to its lack of animal ingredients. Now, Singaporeans can enjoy yakiniku without the guilt!

The two new menus available at Aburi-EN are the Kalbi Don Set (S$13.80) and the Stamina Teishoku (S$15.80) — which are available for a limited time only. Next Meats has specifically chosen to work with Aburi-EN as they are a Japanese grilled-meat specialist. The two menus are the culmination of many months of research and development, and they will also be Aburi-EN's first-ever plant-based dishes.

For the Kalbi Don Set, Next Meat's Kalbi is grilled and served atop a bowl of fragrant Japanese steamed rice. Equally indulgent, the Stamina Teishoku features the Kalbi stir-fried with cabbage along with egg imported from Okinawa. The meat is then served with fragrant Japanese steamed rice, salad, pickles and miso soup. For both dishes, the meats are glazed with a special homemade sauce that packs an irresistible umami punch.

Both the Kalbi Don Set and Stamina Teishoku will be available at all Aburi-EN stores from April to July 2021.

An advocate of sustainable food production and better food security

The NEXT Kalbi is one of Next Meats' innovative offerings, which includes other plant-based delicacies such as the NEXT burger and NEXT gyudon (beef bowl). The company champions the importance of saving the planet and humanity through reducing the emission of greenhouse gases (which is produced from meat consumption and animal agriculture) and utilizing biotechnology to combat protein deficiency.

Through extensive research and development, Next Meats has culminated the knowhow on using molecular binding to mould vegetable proteins from powder. Buoyed by state-of-the-art, proprietary technologies, the company has successfully created vegan substitutes that replicate the texture of real meat.

Hailing from Tokyo, Next Meats is a food-tech venture company that specialises in the research and development of Japanese-style alternative meat products. Its journey of product development began in 2017, and the company was officially established in 2020. Its portfolio of products includes plant-based burger patties, gyudon and yakiniku meats.
