Farmers tell govt to control rising prices of feeds

07/23/2014 - Government's proposal to terminate exemption of supply of feeds for poultry and livestock from value added tax (VAT) is a disaster, industry players have said. Players have instead asked government to regulate the industry and save the farmers from a threatened hike in the prices. Prices increase In a statement released by their umbrella organisation, Uganda Feeds Industry, the players said: "The Uganda Feeds Industry is composed of formal producers and a substantial informal sector. As a result of removal of Vat exemption, feeds prices will inevitably increase the formal producers will collect the VAT for onward transmission to URA through selling price adjustment".
