PROGRAM CONTRACT 2011-2020 BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF MOROCCO AND THE POULTRY SECTOR REPRESENTED BY THE INTERPROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION OF THE POULTRY SECTOR -FISA- RELATING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE POULTRY SECTOR

 

 

PREAMBLE

 

Moroccan poultry farming is ensured by two sectors, namely a traditional farming sector and an intensive modern sector. The latter contributes almost 87% of the total production which in 2019 amounted to 625,000 Tons of meat and 4.5 billion eggs, which brings the available for consumption per personn and per year to 20 kg and 178 eggs. Investments in the modern poultry sector are valued at 13.5 billion MAD and the turnover achieved is 32.5 billion MAD. The jobs created in this sector are around 530,000, including 160,000 direct jobs in the production units and 360,000 indirect jobs in the distribution and marketing channels. Since the entry into force of Law 49/99 in April 2007,a considerable effort to upgrade has been noted upstream of the sector, particularly at the level of farms and hatcheries which have been restructured in accordance with the provisions of the law. However, the downstream slaughter and marketing link continues to operate under conditions that do not reflect the level of development noted upstream. This is how the objectives of the 2009-2013 program contract signed in April 2008 between the Government and FISA have already been achieved and even exceeded. This did not fail to have positive repercussions on the accessibility of poultry products and the fall in consumer prices. In addition, the objectives of the Green Morocco Plan target the development of the sector around aggregation and the integration of all segments of the sector,guaranteeing market regulation and improving the quality of poultry products. In view of these developments and in order to meet the new challenges facing the sector, particularly in terms of restructuring of slaughter, development of modern distribution and exploration of niches for export, a new roadmap is needed to strengthen the crucial role of the sector in ensuring food security and the growth of the national economy.a new roadmap is needed to strengthen the crucial role of the sector in ensuring food security and the growth of the national economy.a new roadmap is needed to strengthen the crucial role of the sector in ensuring food security and the growth of the national economy.
