Working alongside Ethiochicken in Ethiopia

Working alongside Ethiochicken in Ethiopia

April 30, 2018 / World Poultry Foundation / Share:

We recently visited Ethiopia to conduct project assessment with EthioChicken.

The World Poultry Foundation staff, along with veterinarians from Merck Animal Health (South Africa) and Aviagen, visited the Ethiopian poultry operations together. The team examined brooding units which are producing Sasso birds.

The group was reviewing production practices and biosecurity in conjunction with EthioChicken field staff.  EthioChicken’s mission is to bring healthy and affordable eggs and meat to every Ethiopian family, and in doing so improve nutrition, enhance rural farmer livelihoods, and create income opportunities for our customers and partners.
