The retail pricing for broiler chicken and eggs are significantly higher than the wholesale prices, according to the Bangladesh Poultry Industries Association (BPIA).
In addition farmers are losing a lot of money since they are selling eggs for a price that does not even cover the cost of production. According to Mohsin, egg and broiler chicken producers receive unfair prices, resulting in significant losses. As a result, the nation’s total number of poultry farms has decreased from 1.58 lakh to 95,523 over the past few years. As a result, daily capacity for producing chicken has declined to 4,219 tonnes from 5,273 tonnes, and daily capacity for producing eggs has decreased to 4,32 crore pieces from 6,64 crores.
The association’s leaders asked the government to step in and set the reasonable rates for chicken and eggs.
