Cape Town - The poultry industry in SA, considered the country's biggest agricultural industry, is limping from one struggle to the next. This time it is a legal battle launched by the Association of Meat Importers and Exporters (AMIE).

The latest challenge comes as the industry shows signs of recovery from layoffs and factory closures, owing to difficult domestic market conditions believed to be exacerbated by poultry imports.

AMIE announced that it has launched legal proceedings against Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies and the South African Poultry Association (SAPA).
