Nearly 600 poultry farmers declare bankruptcy

The latest report reveals that 600 have ceased operation, which is 50% of the small and medium producers in the country, according to the Association of Poultry Farmers (Avipar). They decided to ‘throw in the towel’ in a business that pays Bs 3.50 per kilo of live chicken and that in the current situation requires a production cost of Bs 8 for the same volume. The sector demands state support.
