Director General of Directorate of National Consumers Right Protection (DNCRP) AHM Shafiquzzaman on Thursday said the broiler chicken will be sold from the farms at Tk 190-195 per kg during the month of Ramadan.
Now it is expected that broiler chicken price will come down by Tk 30-40 per kg at the consumers’ level during Ramadan, he said.
He said, “Discussion was held with Kazi, CP, Paragon, and Aftab farms’ representatives. We’ve reached a consensus about poultry chicken price. Currently, broiler chicken is now sold at Tk220-230 per kg from the farms. But the farm owners agreed to sell broiler chicken from the farms at Tk 190-195 per kg during Ramadan.”
The decision on reducing wholesale price will have an impact at consumers’ level, he said.
