Promoting safe food in poultry sector

Promoting safe food 
in poultry sector

Experts at a views-sharing workshop on ‘Business Regulation to Promote Food Safety Governance in Poultry Sector’ at Rangpur city recently stressed on strictly following the business regulation to promote food safety governance in the poultry sector to produce healthier poultry birds and meet nutrition of the population. They put importance on providing adequate training, technology and assistance to poultry bird farm owners, farmers and common people for accelerating hygienic growth of the poultry sector to cut poverty and strengthen national economy.

Promotion of the poultry sector is very important to remove the existing protein deficiency alongside ensuring food security in the country. As a matter of fact, protein is the vital nutrition for normal growth and development of brain and other essential nourishments of human body. Consumption of eggs has also increased with the population boom in the country.  

The country has immense prospects of expanding the poultry sector through the best uses of its existing natural resources. The sector can meet up the nutritional deficit substantially. Extensive and sustainable promotion of the country’s poultry sector through removing its existing problems to cut the nation’s protein deficiency is the prime need of the hour.

Quality of poultry feed must be ensured for healthy growth of the poultry sector. If toxic feed is used in poultry farms the poultry birds will consume the same. Consumption of such poultry birds and their eggs will pose health hazards. It is the responsibility of the government, particularly the food department, livestock department and BSTI, to ensure quality poultry feed for poultry birds. Consumers Association of Bangladesh (CAB) can also play its role in this regard. It is the democratic right of every citizen of the country to get food items free from adulteration for consumption. Keeping it in mind measures should be taken accordingly. There should be proper monitoring of the food items produced by various companies and individuals in the interest of ensuring safe food for consumers.   

The vast youth force in the country can be engaged in promoting the poultry sector. It can solve unemployment problem greatly. A family can earn a substantial amount of money by selling eggs and meats from the poultry farms after meeting its demand. The government, particularly the ministry and the department concerned, can provide necessary financial and logistic supports to the people willing to undertake poultry farming and other related jobs. Provision of bank loans on easy terms and conditions and adequate training to the poultry farmers, particularly jobless youths, can give impetus in this regard.
