​GOVT IMPLEMENTS LOCAL CONTENT IN POULTRY IMPORTS

The government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Food and Agriculture has commenced the implementation of a policy which allows 40 per cent of local content and 60 per cent for imports of poultry products in the country.
This means that an importer would have to purchase 40 per cent of poultry product from farms in the country, and import the remaining 60 per cent.
Deputy Minister, Dr Ahmed Yakubu Alhassan, said this during the closing ceremony of eight-week training course in poultry production for 32 inmates at Nsawam Medium Prisons in the Eastern Region.
He said over $200 million worth of poultry, representing 80 per cent, and other meat products were imported into the country annually.
He said the policy would encourage importers to trade in locally produced poultry products by tying import permit issuance to local purchase.
Dr. Alhassan said it would ensure that some of the money used to import meat remains in the local economy and get paid to Ghanaian poultry farmers and enhance job creation.
