Rise in chicken sale boost demand

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, June 19, 2014

THE high demand of chicken by the Siberia Halal Meat in Labasa has prompted the owners to request poultry farmers on Vanua Levu for more supply.

Owner Abdul Hamid yesterday said his local demand stood at 50,000 chickens per month, something he was trying very hard to meet since he started business three years ago.

"I am only producing 10,000 chickens per month so far with a shortage of 40,000," Mr Hamid said.

"I house my own meat and layer birds but it's not enough for the increasing local demand every month.

"That's why I humbly request farmers to sell their chickens to me.

"The chickens we buy ranges from 0.8kg to 2kg at a reasonable cost.

"It would really help a lot if the farmers supply us with their chickens."

Meanwhile, Mr Hamid said his business was progressing well. Right now, business is doing just fine but we are calling on the farmers to help us in terms of the chicken supply.

"We are also working closely with the government and the Ministry of Agriculture to boost this business for the purpose of meeting the local demand and also helping the farmers."
