Donald Tuckler, executive secretary at the Nicaraguan Poultry Producers Association (Anapa, spanish acronym), indicated that, given the failure of the sale to Venezuela, they are analyzing exporting to Guatemala and Costa Rica, recovering the Honduran market, maintaining exports to Dominican Republic, and "taking advantage of any other opportunity".
In the first half the year slaughter went up by 6% compared to the same period in 2014, and the industry expects to end 2015 with an annual increase of 8%.
Nicaraguan poultry farmers estimate that 2015 will close with a total production of 290 million pounds of meat and 600 million eggs.
Representatives from the poultry sector will meet on August 5th and 6th to discuss issues such as the elimination of chicken imports from the US.
78 million chickens were produced in 2008 and they expect to reach one million laying hens in 2009.
