Azerbaijan’s poultry farms blame State Veterinary Service for raised prices

AZERBAIJAN - Chicken and other poultry products might fall in price in a month or two, head of the Republic Poultry Keepers Aydin Valiyev told APA.

He said the recent rise in price of poultry products is due to some bans related to bird flu pandemic. He said it is not allowed to export one-day chickens and pedigreed eggs to the republic due to the disease.

“This ban causes shortage of chickens and eggs in the country. Some poultry farms can expand their productions thanks to pedigree breeding.

However, most of poultry farms could not afford to do it, and have to import one-day chickens and pedigreed eggs. They have appealed to the government for import of these products from Turkey and Iran. However, the State Veterinary Service (SVS) does not allow it,” Valiyev said.

He also said that if the SVS allows it, the production of fowl and poultry products will expand in the country again, and this will lead to fall in prices.
