The poultry import ban in Senegal: impact on consumer preferences and consumption
Domestic chicken is perceived as fresher, tastier and healthier. • Senegalese who preferred domestic chicken meat even before the ban, would be willing to accept imported chicken at a significantly lower price. • 57% of consumers are highly ethnocentric and strongly object to a reversal of the import ban. • The government should ensure low consumer prices, e.g. by exploring local feed ingredients to improve costs in primary production.
