Poultry products costlier due to dependency on feeds from outside

He added that the country sent the same amount to import the feeds last year. Puri further shared that the raw materials for feeds like soybean, corn, wheat are also being imported from outside.

The poultry feeds are becoming costlier with the latest policy of government adopted in reforms in poultry feeds and sectors.  Nepal Hatchery Industry Association chair Tikaram Pokharel said that the poultry products and meats are becoming costlier due to continuous price rise of feeds.
