Poultry prices in the state are on the rise. During the last one month, the price of broiler has gone up by Rs 20 to Rs 30. In most districts of the state, the price of broiler has crossed Rs 150 per kg. Until a month ago, it was Rs 120. At present, a kilo of chicken costs more than Rs 200. A month ago, it was between Rs 170 and Rs 180.

Meanwhile, the Kerala Hotel & Restaurant Association had come out against the uncontrolled rise in the price of chicken. Chicken prices have soared as trade has returned to normal, with dining in hotels that have collapsed since Covid. The Kerala Hotel & Restaurant Association blames the profit motive of the out-of-state lobby that controls the chicken market in the state for the increase in chicken prices. Along with the chicken, the prices of essential commodities including onions and cooking gas are also on the rise. They also blamed the state for creating an artificial shortage and increasing the price of chicken.

The hotel sector, which is reeling from the crisis following Covid, will have to close hotels or increase the price of resources due to rising prices of essential commodities, including chicken. Kerala Hotel and Restaurant Association President Moitheenkutty Haji and General Secretary G Jayapal demanded that the government intervene in the market to curb the frequent rise in prices of chicken and essential commodities and to increase the price of chicken from local chicken farms.
