TechnoServe and Citibank have partnered to conduct an in-depth study of the poultry industry in South Africa to clarify and identify key areas in the poultry value chain for smallholder farmer participation. Over eight black-owned poultry businesses will be selected to receive incubation services over a period of nine months. TechnoServe will identify how different business models perform and key lessons learned. These observations will be packaged as scalable models and shared with the poultry industry in order to facilitate the inclusion of small-scale farmers into the mainstream poultry value chain.
