  • The future of beef butchery business owners at The Beef Market in the Guadalupe neighborhood in Bogotá depends on the intervention of The Colombia National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute, INVIMA the Kennedy’s Mayor's Office and the implementation of 1500 law of 2007. Business owners have made structural changes and enforced new meat handling methods to keep their jobs. However, not everyone manages to comply with the law. Visits to the sector were apparently intended to fix or provide a solution to each of those working there, but on Enrique Peñalosa’s second term as mayor he determined that the soil used by The Beef Market could have a better use. He also pointed out environmental reasons that affect the surrounding residential areas and the shopping center such as visual and soil pollution, among others. Law enforcement has not succeeded in making the meat market disappear from this sector with visits, fines and closures due to the determination of business owners to remain there.
