Ensuring sufficient meat supply during Ramadhan and Ied Fitr


Chicken meat stock for Ramadhan and Ied Fitr in Indonesia is said to be sufficient. Poultry farmer’s association Pinsar Indonesia even said the stock is more than enough. Current chicken consumption is 52 million birds per week while production is around 64 million birds. Singgih Januratmoko, Chairman of Pinsar Indonesia said chicken demand during Ramadhan and Ied Fitr is estimated to increase to 57 million birds per week.

He hopes broiler farmers will record profits during the religious festivals. In the first quarter of this year they suffered losses since the price of live birds fell to below production cost of around USD 1.19-1.27 per kg.
