MALAYSIA - Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the nation is looking to increase its broiler chicken exports to 30 per cent by 2030.
Asian Agribiz reports that currently, Malaysia’s exports stands at a mere 7 per cent of the 1.5 million broiler chickens that are produced each day.
The Deputy Prime Minister is calling on broiler chicken processing companies in the country to increase output for the world market.
He added that the halal certificates issued by Malaysia were among the best known in the world and many countries were keen to seek them, mainly because halal certifications have a Standard Operating Procedure for hygiene that is appreciated by the world market.
