Mozambique-based Novos Horizontes and its partner Philafrica will use Pas Reform Hatchery Technologies’ equipment for their new facility located in Nampula, in northeastern Mozambique
The facility, set to be operational in August, will be equipped with SmartSetPro setters, SmartHatchPro hatchers, hatchery automation and climate control systems.
The facility will have a capacity of seven million day-old chicks per year.
“We are proud to be able to play such a major role in bringing advanced hatchery technologies to Mozambique, which will help support social and economic development in the country,” Adriaen Sligcher, Pas Reform’s Southern African representative, said.
The company’s project will be financed by Rabobank and Atradius, which is supporting the deal with export credit guarantees.
An export credit guarantee is an insurance policy that protects an exporter against default by an importer.
The financing arrangement will allow African poultry companies to use new hatchery equipment and services.
