China, Japan join Haiti’s demand for Dominican scrap chicken parts
Santo Domingo.- China and Japan are interested in buying the bony parts of locally produced chickens, or the byproduct of poultry plants, adding to the demand by Haiti and Dominicans to make their favorite soup.
Agriculture minister Luis Ramon Rodriguez on Thursday said Haitians pay around RD$14 per pound. “From the chicken processed in slaughterhouses we take the guts, legs and neck, then it’s packaged and sold in large amounts in Haiti.”
He said China and Japan want chicken legs, and “we’re preparing some packing plants to export to these nations.”
In that regard, the official revealed executives of the poultry group Unipollo, in La Vega (central), returned from Japan, where they made contacts to export chicken legs to that nation.
