Our concept is a proven success
This service is based on the concept of APMI, the African Poultry Multiplication Initiative, led by the World Poultry Foundation and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The objectives of APMI are to “increase farmer income, empower women and youth, improve family nutrition, and create job opportunities through the multiplication and supply of dual-purpose breeds.” Under the model, brooder units, or mother units, are supplied with day-old chicks properly rear, feed and vaccinate. After brooding, the birds are then sold to smallholder farmers, somewhere between 28 and 42 days of age.
By using our service, you will benefit not only from the expertise of our team, but also from a concept that has proven success in several regions of Africa, like Tanzania, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Uganda.
