In an interview with GHOne Business’ Emmanuel Agyabeng, General Secretary of the Association Fred Damoah said they have had to increase their prices due to the high cost of feed.
“The Prices of Our Ingredients have been shooting up for the past two years and we were not able to do much about it. Looking at the rate at which poultry farms are closing down now and how prices are skyrocketing, we are getting increments in the cost of feed. We had to come together, have a single voice and then set a uniform price ”, he explained.
