Agriculture Minister working to end illicit importation of chicken parts

Agriculture Minister, Floyd Green, says he will be working closely with several agencies to bring an end to the illicit importation of  chicken parts.

They include the Jamaica Customs Agency, the Veterinary Services Division of  the Agriculture and Fisheries Ministry and the US Department of Agriculture.

Mr. Green noted that the Ministry does not issue permits for people to import chicken leg quarters or mixed parts.

He says the Ministry only provides permits in relation to chicken neck, back and feet.

Mr. Green addressed a meeting with major poultry producers: Jamaica Broilers and Caribbean Broilers Group on Monday, as part of  consultations regarding the importation of  chicken parts.
