Abu Daqer added that the increase in consumption rate was reflected through the government’s decision to relax the COVID-19 measures; including opening restaurants.

He also stressed that the local market did not run out of poultry, but rather that butcheries stopped working during the Eid Al-Fitr long holiday.

Abu Daqer pointed out that the market adheres to the price caps set by the government despite the losses the sector had to incur. Although, he indicated that the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply did not take into account the increase in feed prices as well as the international prices this year.

Earlier, the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply stressed that poultry is available in high quantities in the local market and that the ministry’s inspection teams conduct regular intensive visits on commercial shops, including livestock supply chains.
