Venezuela imports poultry products to meet demand
Venezuela will import 45,000 tonnes of chicken to cover the county’s increasing demand.
According to Minister General Rafael Oropeza, the government has approved the import, as well as 90,000 units of eggs from Colombia to supply private sector stores.
Oropeza insists that the imports are complementary and circumstantial, aimed at covering national demand, which he says has increased by about 35% over the last several months.
Venezuelan producers say they have reached full capacity and are unable to supply the market is because of the increased demand.
