AEN20170322010600320_01_i

Kumasi Central Market traders in Poultry dealings have pleaded the government to institute measures to check the influx of foreign dressed chickens’ importation to the country as it is collapsing the poultry business in Ghana. The Secretary of the Fowl Dealers Association at the market, Joseph Amogya narrating their disappointment to Otec News’ Beatrice Oppong after Eid al-Fitr celebrations, he the price of the foreign chickens are relatively cheaper compared to the local ones, a situation if not checked, will cripple the local industry.

“As you all know Eid al-Fitr is the time when poultry farmers sell a lot of chicken, be it broilers and especially spent layers. Unfortunately for us, the story on the table is that this Eid al-Fitr our sales record was so bad. As we speak now there are hundreds of thousands of spent layers on our farms that should have been sold during Eid al-Fitr which were not sold,” Mr. Amogya said.
