Chicken supply in Malaysia has stabilised, surplus can be exported: Agriculture minister

Date: 2022.08.01

After a period of chicken supply disruptions in Malaysia, the situation has stabilised after steps taken by the government, said Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Ronald Kiandee on Monday (Aug 1).

He also told parliament that Malaysia is now in an oversupply situation and can export chickens to other countries.

Mr Kiandee said that Malaysia had faced a disruption in chicken production several months ago but this has been overcome by policy measures. These include increasing imports and ceasing exports.

“These steps have resulted in an oversupply of chicken now, causing its price to drop below the ceiling price set by the government,” added the minister.

“At this point in time, we are able to produce 106 per cent of our needs for chicken. This means we have the capacity to export chicken from our country.”
