A meat stall in a market in northern Hải Phòng City’s suburban area has become famous in recent days for a unique food hygiene initiative.

Đặng Thị Quyền, a butcher in a market in Kiến Thuỵ District’s Minh Tân Commune has decided to cover her meat stall with a white and pink princess-style curtain that would normally be seen on an eight-year-old girl’s bed to protect the meat from insects.

Those who want pork unveil the curtain to find the friendly butcher waiting inside with her meat.

Quyền said that she has been selling pork for 25 years. In the mornings, she opens the meat stall at the front gate of the commune, and moves it to Minh Tân market in the afternoon.

The hot weather in the past several days brought flies, mosquitoes to her meat stall, annoying both traders and customers.

Quyền said her sister joked about using the curtain when she saw her trying to use a mosquito racket to fight off the insects flying around her stall.

Quyền took the joke as advice, and it turned out to be rewarding advice.

The photo of Quyền’s meat stall with the white curtain has went viral on social media, with most commenters praising the idea and promising to come and buy pork.

One just has to hope she remembers not to put the blanket on her daughter’s bed, or she’ll forever be nicknamed Miss Piggy.– VNS
