The auctions in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Mataderos officially began on May 1, 1901, but the first slaughtered animal – effective start of activities – is dated March 21, 1900.

The design of the new space – private, not concessioned as is the current property – included decisive updates. In order to comply with environmental recommendations, a fundamental axis of the new infrastructure has been to ensure, from the beginning of the works, a correct management of the effluents. Everyone understood this critical point, which in the historic property generated multiple problems, basically due to the blood thrown into the Cildañez stream basin.

“Now there will be an effluent plant, already built, in a circular bioeconomy concept, friendly to the environment,” explained Alfonso Monasterio, one of the consignees behind the overcoming change.

To ensure these improvements, the head of the Federal Criminal and Correctional Court No. 2 of Morón, Jorge Rodríguez, who is in charge of the Matanza-Riachuelo Basin case, toured the new property on several occasions.

In addition, it is highlighted that the circulation of trucks, outside the metropolitan limits, will also mean a logistical and environmental improvement. In this sense, it remains to define administrative issues on the guides for carriers. Next week there are meetings with political authorities to resolve issues related to the change of jurisdiction.
The facilities, on the 130-hectare property of the Cañuelas Agroganadero Market, will include a shopping center and a service station.
