Daily production by the poultry sector is about 2.34 million eggs per day.
Yesille C. Ponce reported the words of Jorge Ulloa, president of the Honduran Farmers’ Association, in LaPrensahn.com: "Products that will be exported include fertile eggs, chicks for fattening, laying hens, chicken meat and eggs, those that are predominant in the country."
By September they should be carrying out the first exports of chicken to Venezuela.
Nicaraguan business have been doing an analysis of their individual industrial capacity, to determine the volume that they will be sending to the South American country, said Alfredo Velez, President of Anapa.
The only requisite missing for Honduran poultry to enter the U.S. is a certification by the Secretary of Agriculture.
Honduras is currently free of bird diseases, and to maintain it this way, the Honduran Poultry Federation commits funds to the National Service of Agricultural Sanity for strengthening control of aviary diseases.
The poultry industry in Nicaragua plans to initiate efforts to obtain certification so that its plants can start exporting chicken meat to the United States.
Since the certification process can take up to three years, the aim of the poultry industry is to start early in order to be ready to start exporting to the US market before the end of the period of tariff reduction set by the DR-CAFTA.
