Riyadh clamp on chicken sales abroad continues...

SAUDI Arabia continues its ban on exporting fresh chicken.

However, Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry board member and its food and agriculture committee chairman Ebrahim Al Daisi said the country and the rest of the world import most of their chicken supply from Brazil.

"The Saudis say they do not have enough production for their own consumption and have to import it themselves so that is another story," he said.

"The only difference is that we have to import more now."
