Egg farmers pleading for tax break

President of the Jamaica Eggs Farmers' Association Mark Campbell
 
President of the Jamaica Eggs Farmers' Association Mark Campbell has warned that the sector is at a crossroads due to the rising cost of production. 
 
Campbell, addressing the Association's annual general meeting in St. Ann on Thursday, said the increased cost of production is driven mainly by the rising price of chicken feed. 
 
He is again appealing to the government to remove General Consumption Tax (GCT) on table eggs to cushion the impact of inflation.
 
Removal of the GCT on table eggs will make them more affordable to consumers and will spur growth in agriculture, he argued.
