Broiler value chains in Ghana and Senegal: organization, challenges and potential policy interventions

Ghana and Senegal are pursuing different poultry trade policies. Ghana permits the trade of poultry meat and Senegal banned the importation of uncooked poultry meat. • In both countries, broiler value chains face high costs of production, especially feed costs, despite their differing policies. • Domestic chicken trade is dominated by live fowl sales in Ghana and Senegal due to limited processing and cooling facilities. • Incentives that encourage local and foreign investments in the processing, distribution and marketing of domestic chicken meat are key to the development of the broiler value chains.
