Growing Poultry Industry Transforms Lives in Mozambique
Mozambicans love their chicken. But in 2005, there was a good chance that the galinha found in Mozambique supermarkets was imported illegally after sitting in Middle Eastern supermarkets for a year or more. Domestically produced poultry accounted for only a third of the market.
TechnoServe saw an opportunity to promote economic growth by developing the poultry industry, launching a comprehensive program in 2005 that brought together public and private partners. Last week, a delegation from the Mozambican poultry industry visited Washington to describe the tremendous impact of this program.
