M’sian Fresh Kampong Chickens, Selected Frozen Products Apparently Allowed For Export Again
Another reversal on the export ban, starting June 15. Here’s where to eat fresh kampong chickens.
In another reversal on its fresh chicken export ban, the Malaysian government is apparently partially lifting the ban for kampong chickens, black chickens and “value-added chicken products” (excluding whole chickens and parts).
A document dated Jun 9 - circulated to chicken farm owners and sellers in Malaysia and which 8days.sg has seen - announced that the selected chooks are allowed for export again after a Cabinet meeting on Jun 8.
Value-added chicken products, which traditionally includes frozen fare like nuggets and sausages, are also apparently included, though the document stated that it doesn’t extend to the export of “whole chickens and chicken parts”. Similarly, live commercial broilers are also still banned for export. The letter was signed by Malaysia’s Director General of the Department of Veterinary Services, Dato' Dr. Norlizan bin Mohd Noor.
