Poultry in Zambia

moderated by Nosiku Siyumbwa

Welcome to our Poultry Innovation Community!

This community aims to provide an effective platform for linkages between International and Zambian businesses for partnership, investment and expertise for growth in the poultry sector. 

In 2015, AgriProFocus Zambia, with support from the Honorary Consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Zambia, conducted a study on the Investment Opportunities in the Poultry Sector in Zambia. A Validation Event was held for poultry stakeholders to promote linkages in the poultry sector in Zambia and our work in the poultry industry has received media attention and has been covered by the Times of Zambia newspaper

Our Plans for 2016

The results of this study will be used to inform businesses in the Netherlands at a Networking event in March. AgriProFocus will also organize a Business to Business event in Poultry that aims to provide a platform for business linkages and identify possible new partnerships that the network can facilitate. 

An Investors Guide on Poultry in Zambia has also been finalised to facilitate potential business linkages and partnerships.

Ultimately, our work in poultry aims to enhance international trade and development between Zambia and the Netherlands.

Field Update Mama Kuku (Faye Cran)

In Arusha and Moshi (Tanzania), Mama Kuku (aka Faye Cran) is very well known. From 1964 Faye Cran has been living in Tanzania where she established the company Kibo Poultry Products. At the moment she has 28.000 broilers in Moshi, 9.000 broilers close to Moshi and 28.000 broilers in Arusha. While this year business has been very tough, Faye Cran expects next year to be more promising. The need to buy new feed milling equipment is high and soon she will expand with two more houses, each with 4.000 - 6.000 broilers, and hopefully an automated feeding system (she is still looking for one).

If you would like to receive more information regarding Mama Kuku or Daphne's work in East Africa, do not hesitate to contact Daphne at daphne.willems@nabc.nl.

Five basic things a chicken needs:

Tanzania Poultry Sector will not be the same again!

It is common practice in Tanzania for people to replicate what a neighbour or friend is doing. And it’s very common in the poultry sector. Poultry keepers just learn from each other. Rarely do they get expert advice. Thanks to AgriProFocus Tanzania and its members SNV, MVIWATA and US Grain Council, for a big transformation in the sector.

3 poultry labs were organized in Arusha and Dar es Salaam. The labs consisted of farm visits and a training offered by a PUM expert Mr.Joost. Please find the report of the poultry learning labs attached.
