Bird flu deals heavy blow to Polish poultry industry
font size    

Poland's poultry business has lost an estimated 760 million zlotys (233.8 million U.S. dollars) during the past six months as a result of bird flu outbreaks, the Polish News Agency reported Tuesday.

"The loss is a result of a fall of production and consumption of poultry meat," the president of the National Poultry Council Rajmund Paczkowski said.

According to estimates, the production of the poultry industry between October 2005 and March 2006 fell by 5 to 8 percent, and even 20 percent in some smaller farms, while the consumption of poultry products dropped by 10 to 15 percent.

More than 10 bird flu outbreaks have been detected in Poland since the country confirmed its first case in the northern city of Torun on March 5.
