Distributor of chicks, accelerating the expansion of Uganda's egg market.
AgDevCo’s SDU is accelerating Uzima’s expansion into the Ugandan market. Its committed budget is contributing to the recruitment, training and salary of Uzima’s veterinary staff and the costs of distributing day-old chicks efficiently across Uzima’s agent network. Both services are vital to successful market expansion and the anticipated positive impact of up to 200,000 smallholder farmers. Increased poultry meat and egg consumption in the local communities will also improve current low protein diets and fight malnutrition.
