The South African Poultry industry went through a difficult time over the past couple of years especially with regards to issues such as the illegal dumping of poultry products. Dumping in our context, happens when products are sold in South Africa at a lower price than it would be sold for in the country the product originates from. This has devastating effect on our local poultry industry by undercutting local producers and leading to job losses within the industry and a lack of reinvestment. The industry had a round table discussion in February to see how they can address these issues and gave feedback on some of the issues that has already been addressed. The Chief Executive Officer of the South African Poultry Association, Izaak Breitenbach elaborates on these issues with local radio station RSG. You can find the full interview below.
