In­dus­try in­for­ma­tion

One of SAPA’S main ser­vices to the in­dus­try has been the gath­er­ing and pub­lish­ing of in­dus­try data through in­de­pen­dent ser­vice providers. Over the years, the par­tic­i­pa­tion of pro­duc­ers in this process has re­duced dras­ti­cally. The broiler pro­ducer par­tic­i­pa­tion has re­duced so much that it’s be­come im­pos­si­ble to pro­duce sta­tis­tics for the broiler in­dus­try. This is in­deed a great loss, as this in­for­ma­tion is not only valu­able to pro­duc­ers but also to govern­ment, banks, sec­ondary in­dus­tries, in­di­vid­u­als look­ing to en­ter the in­dus­try, and many oth­ers. The lack of this in­for­ma­tion is going to make it very dif­fi­cult for en­ti­ties to fol­low in­dus­try progress and de­vel­op­ments.

SAPA ap­peals to all broiler pro­duc­ers, mem­bers and non-mem­bers to re­con­sider their stance and sub­mit the in­for­ma­tion for the ben­e­fit of ev­ery­one. Pro­duc­ers are wel­come to contact SAPA of­fices should they have any ques­tions or re­quire any as­sis­tance.
