Local poultry sales and demand soared due to incentive, former minister of agriculture says

(Togo First) - The partial restriction on imports of frozen chicken is a boon to local poultry sales. This was revealed by the former minister of agriculture, Noel Bataka, in a written message to a deputy. 

From May 18, 2020, to July 12, 2020, local poultry sales soared from 3 tons to nearly 7 tons per week.

According to the former minister, the increase is due to an incentive pushing for partial substitution of imported poultry with local poultry, initiated after commitments made by poultry importers. 

Without giving further details, Bataka said the incentive, which caused demand for poultry to rise, was the catalyst for a new investment dynamic translated into a greater interest of entrepreneurs in local poultry production.
