    The number of establishments accepting card payments is expected to grow several fold with specialist payment firms making large investments in the electronic payment space.

    Atos Worldline the company which processes one of three credit card transactions in India after its acquisition of Venture Infotek aims to grow its network of two lakh credit card accepting machines by 50% each year. Another payment service provider First Data Corporation which acquired ICICI Merchant Services from ICICI Bank last year has grown its network 60% in a year.

    Speaking to ToI, Marc-Henri Desportes, EVP, Atos said that he expects the share of electronic payments such as credit cards, net banking and mobile payments to grow sharply. “In India the share of electronic payments in total payments for personal consumption is around 3%. Considering that this ratio ranges between 15% to 30% and even 50% to other countries we expect electronic payments to grow to 15% of all transactions in five to ten years.

    As Yulin's controversial dog meat festival closed, restaurants and vendors say their main source of meat is "edible dog" farms that usually contain several hundred canines. But it has been discovered that many dog farms operate without proper inspections and quarantine procedures. In addition to this, the vaccines farmers use on their dogs, the chemicals that meat proceeding factories use and the poisons some dog traffickers use to kill dogs pose a substantial threat to health of those who enjoy eating dog meat.

    It has never occurred to Du Hanzhong (pseudonym) that he might name his dogs. Perhaps it is because he usually has around 200 of them. Or maybe it is because he knows his dogs will not keep him company for long.

    Instead of providing years of companionship nike air max 270 femme pas cher , Du's dogs will be up for sale at 6 months old and some at 4 months old. Unlike other dog sellers, Du never boasts of the cuteness of his dogs when bargaining with his customers, focusing instead on their well-built bodies.

    Locked in an iron cage, the dogs are weighed on a large scale and then loaded on a truck to be transported away.

    "Once they go through my gate, they are none of my business nike air max 270 homme blanche ," Du said calmly, trying to play down the sadness he once felt when parting with his dogs.

    He knows well enough where the dogs end up. Either in dog meat processing factories or heading directly to the dinner tables of local families or restaurants, which is why he started his business three years ago in his hometown in Northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

    "They [dog thieves] stole my dog in 2011. It was poisoned to death, but they left the body behind somehow. My hometown was under-developed and there were many slackers who would steal dogs for money since some local villagers eat dog meat," Du told the Global Times.

    That was when Du decided to join the slackers and become a dog farmer as the business still thrives despite increasing uproar to stop the eating of dog meat.

    There are no exact records regarding dog farms in China. Searching "dog farm" on the Baidu search engine only shows dog farms located in East China's Shandong Province or Northeast China nike air max 270 homme pas cher , whereas the industry is actually spread across the country, according to several dog farmers reached by the Global Times.

    Meanwhile, industry insiders almost unanimously agree that there are no "large-scale" dog farms in China. Compared to pig farms, which must have thousands of pigs to be considered "large scale," most dog farms have less than 700 dogs.

    "There is no such thing as a large-scale dog farm. Dogs cannot be raised in a large number together. They are prone to diseases and one sick dog can threaten a whole farm ," said Fan Xiantao, head of Fankuai Dog Meat Products and the dog farm association of Peixian county in East China's Jiangsu Province, an area which is known for dog meat.

    Fan's facility, covering 20,000 square meters nike air max grossiste chine , does not raise dogs on its own. When it is dog meat season, which begins around the Mid-Autumn Festival that falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, his company would go and purchase dogs from smaller farms or even households in the county.

    "There are hundreds of thousands of dogs in Peixian county. It is our resource base," he said.

    Dog farmers either directly contact dog meat processing companies or dog traffickers when their dogs are ready for slaughter.

    There are two main kinds of "edible dogs" in the business: Chinese rural dogs and hybrids of large dogs, such as Caucasian Ovcharkas and Tibetan Mastiffs. Many dog farms in southern China prefer Chinese rural dogs nike air max pas cher femme , which are usually smaller with firm muscles, while farms in northern China tend to go for large dogs with more fat.

    All dog farmers contacted refused to allow the Global Times to visit their farms. They said they were fearful that harassment by activists or an exposé on one farm would damage the industry. But many agreed to send photos to prove their existence.

    As "livestock," the dogs are either locked in cages or put into dog sties with brick walls, according to photos sent to the Global Times or posted to an online chat group. Each dog is given an area of about 1.5 square meters on average as the animals often need to share a sty or cage with others. Violent dogs are raised individually in their own cages.

    Some farms also have open spaces for dogs to play during the day.

    According to farmers, a dog can be raised cheaply nike air max pas cher grossiste , with food costing less than one yuan ($0.16) a day and one-time vaccines costing 10 yuan.
