Deputy Minister of Food Industry, Commodity and Regional Development of Sarawak (Commodity and Regional Development), Datuk Martin Ben said that new farms can be opened if the farmers meet the requirements of 'Modern Pig Farm' (MPF).

"My ministry allows the opening of new farms to operate if the MPF conditions are met, especially good farm biosecurity practices," he said.
