Chicken Exports Banned to Avert Domestic Shortage

Chicken Exports Banned to Avert Domestic Shortage Chicken Exports Banned to Avert Domestic Shortage

The ministries of agriculture and industries have reached an agreement to ban chicken exports to boost supply in the domestic market and help keep prices in check. 
Earlier this year, due to overproduction, the country temporarily reduced chicken export duty, resulting in the outflow of most of the country’s poultry output and increasing domestic prices, IRNA reported. 
Iran’s poultry farmers have the potential to boost exports to 500,000 tons of meat per year, but factors such as US sanctions and a feed shortage remain the biggest obstacles, according to Poultry World.
