Price hike: KPDNHEP proposes subsidy for poultry farmers

KUALA BERANG – The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) will submit a proposal to the Finance Ministry (MOF) to provide a subsidy to poultry farmers in the country as a measure to control the increase in chicken prices.

Deputy Minister Datuk Rosol Wahid said currently, there are about 20 farmers operating the largest poultry farms in three states, namely Johor, Negeri Sembilan and Perak, which produce 80 per cent of chicken supply for the local market.

He said the increase in chicken prices was reported to be due to the increase in the price of chicken feed components, namely soya beans and corn, which were imported entirely from abroad and affected local poultry farmers.
