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 2016, AgriProFocus and the Royal Netherlands Embassy Trade Office commissioned a video on the investment opportunities in the Poultry sector in Zambia with the aim to facilitate business linkages between Zambian poultry value chain players and Dutch poultry and allied businesses interested in doing business in Zambia. Watch the video below!
Poultry Farming can be defined as raising chickens, ducks, or other fowl (birds) for meat, eggs, or both. This can be done either for profit making purposes or may also be done for only family feeding purposes. Regardless of the purpose, it is important to ensure sustainable methods are followed to ensure reduced losses and maximise gains.
This one day training (Refreshments Included) aims to provide participants with sufficient information and knowledge to allow them to keep poultry in a sustainable way no matter your purpose for keeping poultry. It will also help you understand and decide if you can make money out of the venture. Further, it presents you an opportunity to network and interact with like-minded people.

Kenya may lift the import ban imposed on Uganda chicken and eggs in the next one week, after experts from the two countries met to assess the measures taken against an epidemic of bird flu.
This will, however, depend on the final tests carried out by a group of experts drawn from the two countries. They will conclude the exercise in the next one week.
Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett said the two teams are doing a risk assessment of the Avian flu outbreak in Uganda to determine if it has been contained.
Mr Bett did not confirm when the ban would be lifted, but officials told the Sunday Nation that it could be as early as this week.
Kenya imposed the ban last month after a highly infectious strain of bird flu was reported in Uganda.
But Uganda has assured Kenya that it has contained the outbreak, adding that most farms that export eggs to Kenya are located more than 10km from the quarantined area. According to Mr Bett, the tea... Read more

The government has asked Ugandans and neighboring countries dealing in poultry products, especially domestic birds, not to worry about bird flu saying it was under control.
According to Vincent Ssempijja, the minister for agriculture, the government is currently carrying out continuous veterinary inspections and technical backstopping to commercial farms, to ensure biosecurity measures are strictly adhered to.
“ Fortunately, these farms are located far away from the 10km quarantine radius range, and can produce safe poultry and poultry products for local and export markets,” Ssempijja said.
The minister made the remarks, while addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center in Kampala, on the steps Government is undertaking to control the avian influenza.
