The article reports on the results of the "British Chicken-What Price?" report jointly prepared by the National Farmers Union and the British Poultry Council. It is said that the local chicken industry needs a substantial price increase from retail customers to survive. A decreasing price pressure in the supply chain, avian influenza and the cost of the implementation of Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations are identified as the three main factors that make the industry vulnerable.
