Description

The Ostrich Industry in South Africa has welcomed the lifting of a ban on the export of its meat products. The EU ban was imposed 4 years ago after an outbreak of avian flu. The restrictions were devastating for South Africa, which is a leading exporter of Ostrich products. The 80 million dollar industry employs over 50,000 people and contributes over 5% in export earnings to GDP. Sumitra Nydoo reports.
