Poultry prices in Turkey to remain stable

26-02-2010 | |

Turkey’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Minister Mehdi Eker has said poultry prices will not be influenced by a recent request by the Russian government to increase its poultry imports from Turkey to 500,000 t annually.

Today’s Zadam reports that Eker said export-oriented production is completely different from supplying the domestic market and added that “firms in the Turkish poultry sector are also capable of meeting the rising [Russian] demand in a short period of time.” Hence, Russian demand for Turkish poultry will not affect domestic prices, and its impact on the agriculture sector will be positive.
