The poultry industry mafia has hoarded their stocks and plans to create an artificial crisis in the coming days. According to the details, the poultry distributors have planned to create an artificial crisis of chicken and its products after the ongoing flour and sugar crisis in the country.Notably, there are over 15,000 poultry farms spread in rural areas across the country. The capacity of farms ranges from 5,000 to 500,000 broilers. Annually, Pakistan produces around 18,000 million eggs and over 2,250 million kilograms of chicken meat. It shows that there is a huge potential for the poultry sector to cater to domestic and export sectors. Poultry at present contributes 40% of the total meat consumption and generates employment and income for thousands of people. It is also pertinent to mention here that poultry is the cheapest available meat protein source for our masses and as such, is an effective check upon the spiralling animal protein prices also.
