Rise in Poultry Prices

One of the island’s largest manufacturers of chicken meat, Jamaica Broilers, say they’ve had no option but to increase the price by 3-percent last week.

The Senior Vice President of Jamaica Broilers is Ian Parsard.

Mr. Parsard also noted the last time they had an increase was just over 2 years ago.

The island’s other leading manufacturers of chicken meat, Caribbean Broilers, say they will not be increasing their prices.
