IMPACT OF AVIAN INFLUENZA ON FEED SALES VOLUMES
At this stage industry members are very aware of the outbreaks which are occurring and being reported on widely in the media.
As can be expected, it is extremely difficult to measure the exact impact that the AI has on the Poultry Industry as well as on the Feed Industry. However, AFMA is in the process to quantify the combined effect of AI on feed volumes in total. To be able to do this, AFMA would require every producing members’ cooperation in this effort.
The Animal Feed Manufacturers Association (AFMA) of South Africa is the official industry representative body of the formal animal feed manufacturing industry.
As official representative body AFMA is positioning and aligning itself in the most favourable business environment to the benefit of its members. This is done through its liaison and cooperation with various directly affected groupings, i.e. government departments; regulatory decision makers; parastatals; forums; related associations and value chain partners.
