Tanzania bans importation of day-old chicks


  • In 2016, Tanzania banned the importation of chicks and fresh poultry meat from Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, South Africa and the US to protect local farmers.

Dar es Salaam. Tanzania has imposed a total ban on importation of day-old chicks with effect from next week as it seeks to protect its local hatcheries and limit the inflow of substandard chicks.
With the aim of protecting the local poultry market, the government has said it would no longer issue permits for chicken import from July 30, the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries said in a statement issued over the weekend.

According to the statement, the decision was reached after a meeting between Deputy Minister for Livestock and Fisheries Abdallah Ulega with poultry business stakeholders in the capital Dodoma.

The aim of the decision is the implementation of the law of 2006 where the government has been preventing chicken importation from abroad in order to control the bird flu pandemic and to protect the local poultry market.
