In 2005 Cameroon started to restrict the import of frozen poultry cuts, making it one of a few African countries with such a restriction in place. Simultaneously, the government installed support programmes to actively promote the domestic poultry sector.
Since then, the domestic poultry sector has been characterized by sustainable growth, especially with regards to hatcheries, feed producers, importers of feed and veterinary products – which have been able to gain a strong foothold in the market. With a market share of 42% of the domestic meat production, the poultry sector has now become an important sector.
