CHITWAN, Oct 10: The poultry farmers in Chitwan are facing severe hardships while most of the small business holders in this field have quit this business. The investors are having difficulties repaying their loans to the banks and financial institutions due to the current economic crisis.
Nepal has become self-reliant on poultry products. We no longer have to import eggs and chickens like in the past to fulfill the domestic needs. With this, vast majority of people have access to nutritious food like eggs and chickens. No doubt, this is the result of growing poultry industry in the country. But at times, it seems, poultry industries and intermediaries have established such cartels and syndicates that they can raise the prices of the poultry products whenever they like. The rising price of poultry products in recent weeks is a case in point.
