Local poultry farmers face threat from illegal egg dumping

The illegal dumping of eggs emanating from foreign countries under the disguise of in-transit export is posing a risk to local poultry farmers. An agricultural report by Simonis Storm has revealed that the Oshikango border is where most illegal trade takes place, posing a threat to local poultry farmers. According to Namib Mills and the Meat Board, Namibia is completely self-sufficient in local egg production. However, dumping by Zambian farmers remains a risk to the sector.
