According to him, investment in the poultry industry for decades has been negligible; a situation he said has brought about an increase in the cost of production in the sector.

He indicated that the development is the cause of the high of cost of local poultry as against the imported ones. This, he said, is causing low patronage of their products and restricting the local industry from rubbing shoulders with the foreign producers.

Mr Oduro made the declaration when he addressed participants at a stakeholders meeting held by the association in Accra.

Dubbed “National Broiler Revitalization for forty per cent import substitution”, the exercise sought to deepen advocacy and call on government to fully implement the forty per cent import substitution policy on poultry products.

The ceremony, which was attended by stakeholders around the country, gave participants the platform to brainstorm on measures to enhance the operations of the poultry industry for the growth and development of the economy.
Participants also appealed to the media to sensitize the citizenry to patronize local poultry.
