Spotlight on sub-Saharan Africa’s poultry sectors in Rwanda

PoultryAfrica2017The second edition of Poultry Africa will be held in Rwanda from 2-3 October 2019, focusing on the poultry meat and egg sectors of countries in sub-Saharan Africa

During the event, there will be the Leadership Conference, which is set to bring world-class speakers to share their expertise on global and regional topics.

Poultry Africa is a boutique-style concept from the organisers of the VIV feed-to-food shows around the world. The core objective is to present high-quality networking and trade opportunities for suppliers and buyers.

According to Diána Tóth, manager of Poultry Africa, the version lined up for October 2019 is expected to be bigger than before. It is on course to achieve a 30 per cent growth in exhibitor numbers compared with 2017.

Companies from Africa as well as from Asia, Europe and North America are expected to gather at the event.

“One of the main points about the expo at Poultry Africa 2019 is that it will contain not only new exhibitors but also a wider variety of products and services. As two examples of this, the stands this time will include more manufacturers and distributors of systems for slaughtering and processing poultry and more companies offering animal health products,” Tóth commented.

The relatively small size of the poultry business in Rwanda itself is outweighed by the country’s position in a part of the world that has enormous potential for further increasing its production of chicken and eggs. On latest estimates, the countries of West and East Africa together produce almost two million mt of poultry meat and 27bn eggs per year, with forecasters expecting up to a 10 per cent increase in output by 2025.

The show aims to attract high-level delegations from focus countries in its target region amid expectations of a much larger total attendance than at the 2017 edition.
