Indonesian poultry farmers seek market segmentation


Indonesia’s Joint-Secretariat for Independent Poultry Farmers Rescue is planning to demonstrate today at the Ministry of Agriculture’s office in Jakarta. The joint-secretariat will demand that the ministry impose a selling price for live birds and eggs that is above their production costs as price fluctuation has led many to collapse.

They also want a fair trade system and a 70% market share in the broiler & layer farming sector. Last but not least, they also want the ministry to define market segmentations – live birds or fresh warm broiler market for independent farmers, while frozen broiler meat market for integrators. Around 200 people will join the demonstration.
