Major damage to poultry industry in Pakistan
Pakistan Poultry Association (PPA) North Zone Chairman Raza Khursand has said that the recent floods in the country caused up to Rs 8 billion damage to the poultry industry.
“Exact estimates of losses will be possible only after the clearance of water because many areas of the country are still inaccessible. Tentatively, the industry has suffered a loss of Rs 7 to 8 billion besides bringing the production process to a complete halt in the affected areas for the next six months,” he said according to a report by Daily Times.
Decrease in chicken consumption
Khursand further added that “The consumption of poultry, especially chicken has been also decreased in the flood-hit areas because focus is on basic foods items.”
