Hong Kong doubles daily imports of live chickens

The supply of live Mainland chickens will be doubled to 16,000 a day starting from Sunday (August 3, 2008), according to the Food & Health Bureau of Hong Kong.


The bureau said the arrangements will ensure a steady live chicken supply in the market. The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department and the Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department will closely monitor the live poultry wholesale market, retail markets and farms to protect public health from bird flu risks.


The bureau also said the supply of day-old-chicks from China will be resumed.
