US Chicken legs are set for imports into India. There has been no imports for few years after the outbreak of avian influenza which devastated the American poultry market. Now, the ban has been lifted and the market is set for more imports as the current price difference is large. American market only consume chicken breasts while legs are largely discarded, while chicken legs are consumed in India. So the US industry can dump the same in Indian market at throw away prices.
India has to take a stand on these imports – as US breeders are fed with genetic modified foods, beef and also stored for many years under cold storage. These industry practices are not prevalent in India. Even the size of chicken are different and there bound to be difference in taste as well !
