Association seeks subsidies and concessions in order to maintain the current price of eggs

CABINET NOTES:

The Cabinet met with the Egg Layers Association consisting of its President, its Vice President and the Public Relations Officer who are seeking subsidies and other concessions, in order to maintain the current price of eggs.

 

After an intense discussion it was agreed that locally-produced eggs are more competitive than the imported eggs and they should remain that way, despite increased costs which the egg farmers are experiencing.

 

Cabinet has agreed that the subsidy which other farmers enjoy in the purchase of water and electricity from APUA is to be extended to the egg farmers.

 

Since many of the egg farmers are located on Sanderson’s Estate, APUA will plant the necessary poles and run the water lines so that the egg farmers can access these APUA supplies.

 

It was also agreed that the solar lights that have been allocated to some farmers will also be extended to the egg farmers to reduce praedial larceny.

  1. People producing anything in Antigua tend to behave as if they want government to meet their ENTIRE COST of operations and then they enjoy all the revenue. Notice I did not say profit…just being pedantic though.
