Farmers count their losses due to shortage of feed – Citi Business News


Summary short_text

Just as poultry farmers were preparing to take advantage of the demands from the holiday season, they were hit with a scarcity of maize which is very critical to poultry rearing since it forms a large part of feed for the birds.
Ghana currently imports over US$ 300 million worth of chicken annually and these products tend to be cheaper than their local counterparts making it difficult for local poultry farmers to compete.
Philip eloquently explains why, "Even though I produce fresh and organic chicken from my farm, sometimes I do not eat them because I have no option. If I walk into a restaurant right now, the likelihood that I will be served an imported chicken is 100%. I just had my lunch; I ate chicken and I have no doubt that it was imported. If we have a system that decreased our production cost, our locally grown chicken will find their way to our colds store and restaurants."
