The poultry sector in Tanzania is emerging steadily both in indigenous and exotic chicken and has great potential. For the past few years, Tanzania’s population has been growing rapidly increasing the demand for animal protein. The potential of the poultry sector in Tanzania opens opportunities for investments. Kukua na Kuku was built to unlock Tanzania’s potential in poultry and to make the poultry sector a
dynamic, vibrant and competitive sector.
As a cluster of Dutch companies, the Kukua na Kuku partnership promises farmers to increase their efficiency, productivity and the quality of their produce by learning from the cluster’s agricultural expertise and experience. We aim to improve farm management, animal health, marketing and ensure the availability of quality feed and suitable equipment. We believe that by investing in the entire value chain the sector will be unlocking its full potential and, in turn, will catalyze the growth of demand for good quality poultry products. By setting up a training facility and demonstration farm we invest in the future as this will allow a transfer of knowledge and expertise throughout the entire value chain. Furthermore, we believe in future-proof solutions; in addition to training a large number of farmers on farm management, we will also improve the further dissemination of this acquired knowledge by developing the trainees’ educational skills.
