20 February 2008

TRINIBAD AND TOBAGO - Demand for chicken and other meats drops around this time but the decrease became noticeable months before the Lenten season started, a top poultry producer said on Monday.

Any price above $5.75 a pound over the next few months is unnecessary, he said.

"Poultry is a volume driven business," he said, adding that it cost less to produce more.

"We believe that any price in excess of $5.75 a pound is unnecessary based on present commodity prices."
