A new report from the United States Department of Agriculture estimates poultry production at 27MT in 2018, mainly comprising backyard chickens and a few commercial farms.
That year, Angola was the 5th largest importer of American poultry, valued at more than $180m.
According to the USDA, Angola aims to become a major poultry producer in the coming years.
One company forging ahead with meeting this goal is Aldeia Nova, a public/private partnership that is an integrated egg production system.
“The poultry operation of Aldeia Nova is a fully integrated egg production system utilising tenant farmers to manage small houses of 1,000 laying hen capacity. The project consists of 600 such units with a capacity to produce 400,000 eggs per day,” according to the USDA. ■
