Armenian producers demand import restrictions
Cheap chicken imports force down local prices and damages businesses, says Sergey Stepanyan, chairman of Armenia’s Union of Poultry Farmers, who called on that country’s government to impose import restrictions to assist poultry farms that are operating at a loss.
Notwithstanding a government programme aimed at increasing poultry production to gradually replace imports, Stepanyan argues that this cannot be effective if imports of cheap. Low quality chicken parts continue to flood the country.
New poultry association for Europe
In a move aimed at promoting the common interests of its members before the European Commission and European Parliament, several organisations have joined together to form the European Live Poultry Hatching Egg Association.
These include EPB (poultry breeders), AEH (hatcheries)
