CEO of Jamaica Broilers Group Christopher Levy said Guyana could play an outsized role in supplying animal feed to the region if its agricultural sector starts focusing on growing the raw materials necessary to process for feeding animals.
Levy made the comments on the recent Mayberry Investments Investor Forum.
“When you look at the land mass that’s in, like, Guyana, for example, Guyana could produce enough grain for the poultry industry in this region. Belize, again, could produce grain. Jamaica doesn’t have the land to do it. If we took all of the cane lands and produced corn at the best yields seen in the United States, it would represent three months of corn supply to Jamaica Broilers,” Levy said in response to a question from Mayberry Investment Executive Chairman Chris Berry.
