Specialty feed additives manufacturer NUTRIAD participated in the first ever Poultry Africa Expo Leadership Conference and Technical Seminars organized for Sub-Saharan Africa’s poultry industry, which took place in Kigali (Rwanda), in October. Focusing on best practice examples, the event welcomed visitors from Eastern and Western Africa.
The year-on-year growth in the global poultry markets is set to continue. A demand growth of more than 60% is expected over the next 20 years. This leads to significant global investment streams in an industry that is evolving, from a national and regional basis to a more global platform. Although most recent investments have focused on Europe, the Americas and Asia, the African poultry industry is modernizing. A rising middle class and rapid urbanization is accelerating the pace of development in Africa.
Stated Erik Visser, CEO Nutriad: “Poultry Africa 2017 marks the start of Nutriad’s expansion in the Sub-Saharan region. The event allowed us to engage directly with industry experts from the region and enabled us to strengthen ties with various local producers, better understand their current challenges and define the appropriate portfolio.”
A broad portfolio of science based product applications is available for the poultry industry. At the Expo focused on its Digestive Performance and Mycotoxin Management platforms.
Added Gilles De Feyter, MEA Manager Nutriad: “I enjoyed the energy level at this inspiring event. We are excited to be part of a developing livestock industry in general and poultry in particular in East and Western Africa. I feel confident that our solutions can help improve production efficiency and will start to spend more time in the various local markets."
