Benchmark Value: The price of frozen chicken has increased by 100%. Adongo's


The government contends the improvement is to secure neighborhood makers delivering comparable things imported at a less expensive expense. The move has been firmly dismissed by the Ghana Union of Traders Association, GUTA which has cautioned the improvement will prompt augmentations in costs.

The Association of Ghana Industries, AGI, has anyway hailed the improvement portraying it as a distinct advantage in enabling neighborhood producers.

Remarking on the improvement in a post on Facebook, the Bolgatanga Central MP who is an individual from the board on Trades and Industry revealed the inversion has prompted a sharp ascent in import obligations already. He singled out chicken as quite possibly the most impacted thing with a practically 100 percent increase in duty. The advancement Adongo contends will leave customers paying substantially more for chicken from their cherished food joints.

"Import obligation on a 40 footer dope holder of chicken backs (least expensive chicken available) has expanded by practically 100 percent from Ghc36K to Ghc 71K. Concerning chicken thighs and it slips drumsticks' minds. No more fufu Ghc 5, Akoko Ghc 2. 3 all the more recently begun."

As indicated by him the move by the government is "Ludicrous and obtuse".
