Cape Town - Another row over the trade of poultry products is playing out - this time involving advocacy group FairPlay, who is refusing to back down despite being threatened with a lawyer's letter from the Association of Meat Importers and Exporters (AMIE).

"The last few months have seen an ongoing onslaught against imported chicken aimed at trashing the product and insinuating that it is all dumped in our country," AMIE CEO David Wolpert told Fin24.

"We believe that any allegations of dumping should not be made via wild allegations in the media, but through a formal investigation conducted by the International Trade and Administration Commission (ITAC)."
