Export ban

On 3 October 2012, the Minister of Commerce and Industry of Saudi Arabia, Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, announced a ban on the export of chicken. He said the measure aims at ensuring sufficient supply to the local market and at keeping prices stable.
To date, no official document is available, but all major press agencies in Saudi Arabia have reported this measure. The official document will be added to this report once available.
