SEVERAL SMALL farmers  are crying foul over a decision by management of Trimart Supermarket Ltd. to reduce the intake of chickens from them from 6 000 a month to a mere 20 a week.

The angry farmers, who did not want to be identified, told the DAILY NATION yesterday they had been informed of the change only last Sunday.

They charged that Trimart had “unceremoniously” dumped many of them and was now getting the majority of its chicken from Chickmont Foods Ltd, one of the island’s biggest chicken processing plants.

It is understood that Trimart has also informed a Christ Church chicken processor that it would  no longer be taking Grade B chicken from his plant.

The solution is not difficult. The farmers need to establish a single retail and or wholesale outlet for themselves. They would now be the source, middleman, and retailer. This is a win win win situation.
This is a great day for them in the long term.
