By Rubén Morales Iglesias: We’ve had no shortage of chicken despite an outbreak of avian influenza because Belize is self-sufficient in poultry production, said the Minister of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise Jose Abelardo Mai on Thursday.

After saying the avian influenza outbreak in Northern Belize has been contained, Minister Mai said that despite the losses incurred by the farms affected by avian influenza, Belize is self-sufficient in poultry production and there has been no shortage in chicken supply.

“The good thing about agriculture in Belize, is that we are self-sufficient in poultry production,” said Minister Mai.

“In 2016, when they had this disease in Spanish Lookout, there was a larger amount of birds that were depopulated, but the northern districts, Corozal and Orange Walk, picked up the slack and there was never a shortage of poultry.

“The same thing is playing out now. While we had less depopulation this year, the other producers in Spanish Lookout and Little Belize picked up the slack and there is no shortage of poultry at this time.”
