Tony De Elias, president of the National Confederation of Catulmen (Confagan), reported that food consumption in the country has decreased in the first half of the year due to the lack of access to power and is between 6 and 12 kilograms per capita per year. .
Confagan announced a slight recovery in the sector in 2022 when food consumption went from 8 to 12 kilograms per person, which represented a 50% recovery, but in the first half of 2023 fell 2 kilos to settle at a minimum of six kilos per capita. .
The National Federation of Catulmans (Fedenaga) previously announced that meat consumption in the country had dropped from more than 65 kilos per person in 1999 to only 3 kilos in 2020, the worst year in the country’s modern history of livestock.
“Serious” problems in the region
Among the “most serious” issues facing the agricultural sector, the comparison of inputs for animal health stands out.
De Elias explained that before the purchase of these tools was made from transnational companies located in the country, since the matter is a “specimen” that this basket of agricultural inputs was brought to the nation “by a sound and legal tool”.
These are the inputs that the basket should have, those of animal reproduction, which are valuable, and of health to extinguish fevers, such as foot and mouth disease and leptospirosis.
Of the states most affected by the theft of cattle, De Elias shows that he requested a list from Apura and Falcone.
