The government is taking radical measures to protect local poultry farmers from unfair competition.

According to Cabinet Secretary in charge of Agriculture Mwangi Kiunjuri, the Ministry will now be issuing clearance to egg importers in order to import their eggs

The CS outlined the measures during a response session to the agriculture departmental committee. Previously, egg import licenses were issued directly by the Director of Veterinary Services.

The Country’s annual egg production stands at 1.6 billion while annual consumption is at 1.2 billion, meaning that farmers are left with over 400 million eggs.
