The South African Poultry Association (Sapa) says it is disappointed in the suspension of anti-dumping duties on certain imported chicken products, adding that the South African industry has invested R1.5-billion in expanding local processing capacity in support of the Poultry Sector Masterplan and created more than 1 500 new jobs. Emerging farmers have spent more than R600-million to build new farms to support the increase in capacity at a time when input costs are against the industry on the back of global macroeconomic issues, says Sapa Broiler Organisation GM Izaak Breitenbach.
