by Ha Thu – Covid-19 had an immediate negative impact on meat consumption including poultry meat due to closure of all food services according to Mohamad Ismail, Senior Director of Sales and Technical Services for Cobb Asia. He told Asian Agribiz that it will take the global economy at least two years to recover. As for the poultry industry, Mr Ismail expressed concern that the impact will prolong and consequently DOC placements will fall further due to lockdowns, pressured incomes and uncertainty.
