Abstract— This study is to identify barriers to the development of rabbit sector in Tunisia using value chain approach, as an instrument of strategic analysis and value-cost optimization. To this end, a survey was conducted with a representative sample of industrial rabbit breeders. The results prove that the development of the rabbit value chain is conditioned in promoting the efficiency and the quality at the breeding system. Rabbit feed quality is the main constraint for the majority of breeders, followed by animal feed prices. This justifies the increase of the consumer sale prices of rabbit meat, affecting its domestic supply. Thus, the growth of the Tunisian rabbit sector is based on a reform and an upgrade of the productive systems and also on a better organization of the sector through the promotion of the vertical and horizontal integration. Promoting rabbit meat consumption is also a determining factor of rabbit sector development.
Keywords— Rabbit, Tunisia, Value chain.
