  • Invite the diverse stakeholders in the compound feed production sector to revamp the declaration of their activity to the regional trade directorate within a period not surpassing January 31, 2022.
  • Call on the actors working in the egg distribution circuits to update their activity with the same management and to communicate copies of their tax identification within a deadline not overextending January 31
  • Call the last category to supply the market with eggs and respect the set prices
  • Continue to evaluate the rise in prices and implement new measures to ensure the supply of eggs to the market while taking into account the purchasing power of consumers.
