Paul blasts wing imports
THE CONTROVERSIAL imported chicken wings have landed and they have Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) chief executive officer James Paul upset enough to castigate both the Barbados Agricultural and Development Management Corporation (BADMC) and Paul’s Enterprises Limited (PEL).
Acting on a tip-off, Paul was in Salters, St George, at Tropic Ice where customs officials were supervising the movement of the boxes of the wings by PEL personnel, which had arrived last Saturday.
“I have nothing against people trying to make business in this country, but my concern is that we should not do it in a way that compromises each other. This action really robs a poor family who are relying on keeping chickens from making the kind of revenue they have to make, especially in these hard times,” he charged.
Paul said he saw no reason for the wings to be imported in light of how the local chicken industry was improving.
