BARBADOS - The Barbados Egg and Poultry Producers Association will have a meeting in another six weeks with poultry farmers to discuss a $55 million insurance fund. This was revealed yesterday by president of the Barbados Egg and Poultry Producers Association Carlyle Brathwaite as he gave remarks at a seminar on the avian influenza at the Sherbourne Conference Centre, yesterday morning. Brathwaite said he was proposing the meeting with poultry farmers so as to sit down with them and outline the whole project of what I am trying to do. I am trying to create a fund that would have anywhere around $50 to $55 million in it. He continued, When we are finished, it would be there to assist the industry at all times. So, its going to have to run for about five to six years to create the money I am speaking of, so that when I am finished, we would have that money to work as an insurance. Source: Barbados Advocate
