The Dominican government is accelerating the production of chicken meat in order to supply the population and avoid price speculation.
The information was offered by the Minister of Agriculture, Limber Cruz, who indicated that the production went from 18 million units consumed by the country to 19.3 per month, according to a note from the institution.
When interviewed by journalist Huchi Lora in the program El Día, Cruz said that an imported shipment is arriving in the country to inject it into the market and maintain price stability.
“Containers of chicken are arriving. The population should not despair, because chicken is coming in and there is no reason to be alarmed, there will already be supply in the Dominican Republic,” said the head of the agricultural portfolio.
He attributed the increase in demand to main factors such as the opening of the economy and employment, which boosted consumption by 15%, and the unexpected growth of tourism.
