Aabot umano sa P340 bilyong kita ng feed industry ang maaapektuhan sa plano ng Department of Agriculture (DA) na taasan ang pag-aangkat ng mga karneng baboy at manok.

“As imported pork and chicken are already end products, they skip a lot of local allied livestock and poultry industries like feeds and corn which is worth billions of pesos,” pahayag ni House Deputy Minority Leader at Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate nitong Miyerkoles.

Paliwawang niya, batay sa mga industry player, nasa P510 bilyon ang local feeds industry sa bansa at 60-65% ng feeds ay napupunta sa local livestock at poultry.

“On the other hand, corn used for feeds is another P91.4B lost for our local industry. As for chicken, the industry players estimate that the total impact of importation is P82.7 billion because it will bypass the local broiler production up to sales of by-products,” dagdag ni Zarate.
