Jamaica Broilers looks to increase production

Published in the Jamaica Observer

ALTHOUGH welcoming the increased hours available for production due to the lessening of curfew hours by the Government, senior vice-president of finance at Jamaica Broilers Group Limited, Ian Parsard says it will take time for the chicken and feed producer to reach previous levels of production.

Parsard, while admitting in an interview with the Jamaica Observer that the company saw a 40 per cent drop in chicken sales and an approximate 20-25 per cent decline in feed sales, said the task now is to get as close as possible to average production.

“We never stopped producing chicken and feed during the limited hours available under the curfew restrictions occasioned by COVID-19. Given the relaxation by the Government, plans are in place to increase our production as the national economy slowly gets back on its feet,” Parsard said.
