Himpuli wants government support for native chicken industry


The Indonesian Local Poultry Farmers Association (Himpuli) wants the government to exclude the native chicken industry from the list of negative investment and open the industry for state-owned companies like PT Berdikari to venture into native chicken breeding. Ade M Zulkarnain, Himpuli Chairman said the government still limits investment in the industry to a maximum of USD 750,000.

“This policy is not relevant to the current situation where demand for native chicken DOC continues to increase,” he said. National native chicken DOC production currently is around 95-100 million chicks. Mr Zulkarnain predicted the production will grow to 110 million chicks this year.
