 and at low cost

Production now stands at over 500 million
 eggs and 36 million broilers annually
CONTINUED
Growing at the rate of 25% for the layer and
 30% for the broiler annually
Figures still low compared to RSA but
 developing economically due to growing
 consumption
The country has developed capacity of 1.8
 million chicks and 41, 000mt feed per week
Currently going through a phase of integration
 in broiler and layer production
CONTINUED

Exporting table eggs, fertile eggs and DOCs to
 Congo DR, Kenya and Tanzania
s being modernized with pure-line breeding, latest
 vaccines and medicines, environmentally
 controlled housing, latest poultry abatoirs and
 chicken meat processing units and excellent feed.

 feeds annually
Has a total of 11 mills producing animal feeds
 out of which 5 are the major ones
80% of the animal feeds produced and
 marketed are poultry feeds
CONTINUED
Maize is the most important cereal used in poultry
 feeds
Annual maize production is about 3 million tonnes
Country Maize consumption as stands at 1.3
 million tons.
10% of it is used in animal feed production out of
 which 80% is used in poultry feeds
No subsidy on commercial maize production but
 there is subsidy on small scale production through
 a food security program
CONTINUED
Soybeans is the most often used protein
 ingredient in poultry feeds
The industry uses slightly over 100,000mt of the
 soybeans
All soybeans and cake produced is GMO free
Currently the country produces on average of
 between 100-120,000mt soybeans annually
The demand for agroproducts is great and need to
 augment our production by 100% if were are to
 remain self sufficient
FEED STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Nutritional stds have been prepared with
 respect to genotype, environment and quality
 of available materials, maintenance methods,
 production and reproduction reqts, production
 capacity and phase of production.
Minimum stds are developed for poultry by the
 Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS) in
 collaboration with the Poultry Association of
 Zambia
CONTINUED

The minimum stds though covered by law are
 only guidelines and their use as standards is
 not mandatory
Feed business is competitive and feed
 producers therefore endeavor to produce
 performing feeds and of highest possible
 quality in order to remain in the market.
FUTURE PROJECTIONS

Population growth rate is expected to double in
 the next 20 years
The economy is growing at the rate of 6-7%
 annually
The purchasing power of the middle class is
 growing as the economy grows
Food habits are skewing towards greater
 consumption of poultry and poultry products
CONTINUED

Consumption is likely to increase from 36 to 55
 and from 3.6Kg to 6.0 Kg per capita per year
 for eggs and broiler meat respectively in the
 next five years.
The country has adopted a free market
 economy hence opening up to foreign
 investment , liberalised imports and removal of
 public sector business.
CONTINUED
In view of continued increase in consumption,
 poultry production and productivity will be
 stimulated
The industry is now developing towards vertical
 integration.
Though live bird market accounts for 65% of the
 total poultry market, consumption of dressed
 chicken is expected to grow by 35% or more in
 both the urban and rural towns in the next five
 years
CONTINUED

Cold chains, branded chickens, chicken cuts
 are being improved upon with consistent
 quality meaning consumer preference for these
 products is growing.
The next decade will see significant changes in
 the industry such as;
ØMergers
ØAcquisitions
CONTINUED

ØAmalgamations
ØJoint ventures
ØDiversification
ØIntegration and efficient chains
ØE-commerce and use of latest information
 technology in global tenders
ØImproved trading; exports, imports and other
 commercial activities
CONTINUED

At the root of all these the country is moving
 towards;
Ø scientific development of feed manufacturing
 technology
ØImproved hatchery and mill technology in order
 to meet the growing demand for chicks and
 feed
ØIncreased use of more scientific formulations
CONTINUED

The Zambian laws at the moment do not
 permit use of GMO maize and soybeans in the
 feed industry but with such expected growth a
 review of policy will become inevitable.

Thank you for your attention and God Bless
