Due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), which consequently generated less absorption of products on the market, Copacol opted to reduce the volume of chickens delivered by farmers by 17% for slaughter. Thus, starting today, April 17th, the average intervals between chicken batches will be extended by 25 days.
“Even with all these difficulties that we are going through, we will maintain the activities that we work in partnership with our cooperative members with safety and profitability, so that everyone can produce quality food for the world, thus maintaining the support of families in the countryside in this period of world economic recession that we are going through”, emphasizes President Valter Pitol.
For poultry farmer Odoni Muller, from the municipality of Cafelândia, the longest break is not good news, but under the circumstances, he believes that the Cooperative is making the best decision.
"Of course nobody wanted this to happen, but at least we are still going to continue producing, because we have a solid Cooperative at our side, which gives us all the support and guarantee we need in the farm," says the producer.
