Call to bring poultry sector under proper monitoring

RAJSHAHI: Experts and researchers concerned at a participatory discussion here unequivocally called for bringing the poultry sector from its farming to marketing under a proper monitoring so that the consumers in general can get safe and hygienic poultry meat and eggs, reports BSS. They viewed ensuring best practice in poultry farming is very important for a sound public health. So, there is no way but to bring the sector under a close monitoring and close supervision.

They made this observation while addressing a daylong consultation workshop of consumers committee supporting government monitoring system in Paba Upazila Parishad Hall room in the district on Wednesday. Consumer Association of Bangladesh (CAB) organized the workshop in association with UKaid and British Council. An Issue-based project on “Food Safety Governance in Poultry Sector in Bangladesh” supported the programme.

Chaired by CAB local unit General Secretary Golam Mostofa Mamun, the meeting was addressed, among others, by Upazila Nirbahi Officer Jahid Newaz and its Vice-chairman Ashraful Haque, District Livestock Officer Dr Zulfikar Akhter Hossain, assistant director of Department of National Consumers Rights Protection Hassan Al Maruf and Upazila Livestock Officer Ismail Hossain.

Besides, CAB Project Field Officers Mohidul Hassan and Mozammel Haque spoke as focal persons. During his concept paper presentation, Agriculturist Mohidul Hassan, field officer of the project, gave an overview of the country’s poultry sector. He puts forward a set of recommendations on how to make the poultry sector safe and hygienic. Using overrated antibiotic in poultry feed is harmful for public health. So, time has come to look into the matter with utmost emphasis. “We have to ensure safe poultry feed and good poultry farming management,” he added.

Jahid Newaz said poultry industry has the potential to help Bangladesh achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of eliminating malnutrition and ensuring better health for the countrymen.

Dr Zulfikar Akhter mentioned that manufacturing and marketing of safe poultry feed is very important for ensuring best practices of poultry farming, adding that all concerned government and non-government entities should come forward and work together to this end.
