Algeria to revive poultry industry with road map

A road map is to be implemented this year in the north African country of Algeria with the aim of reviving the country’s poultry sector.

This follows an action plan for the modernisation and the organisation of the sector announced by the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries announced.

Surplus poultry production

The poultry sector currently experiences constant failures due to surplus production and an increase of poultry products prices, according to the ministry communiqué. After several meetings of consultation, the Ministry and the National inter-professional Council of the Poultry Sector (CNIFA) agreed on implementing the road map in order to develop the sector further.

This roadmap will define the actions to be taken by 2019 in view of relaunching the Algerian poultry industry. These measures will be applied according to short, medium and long term timetables.
