The Greater Accra Poultry Farmers Association (GAPFA) wants the government to put in place policies to check what it describes as the dumping of foreign chicken on the local market here in Ghana.

Statistics reveals over US$600 million worth of chicken is dumped onto the Ghanaian market annually. This has compounded the woes of Ghana’s poultry industry, which is on the verge of collapse due to lack of regulation to check the influx of foreign chicken onto the market.

The chairperson of the Greater Accra Poultry Farmers Association, Gifty Rodor said the government must urgently put in place measures to protect the local poultry industry.

“We request that the government put in place policies that will protect the Ghanaian farmer from the dumping of foreign chicken,” Rodor said.

“There is the need to strengthen the capacity to protect local industry from unfair competition, there is the need for the government to protect us with certain policies,” she added.
