Dutch investors eye Zambian poultry Industry

I

nvestors in The Netherlands have been attracted to Zambia’s underdeveloped poultry sector and the Dutch government is currently studying opportunities with a view to advising companies in that country.

The Embassy of the Netherlands in Zimbabwe, which oversees Dutch interests in Zambia, has commissioned a study of investment opportunities in the poultry sector in the country on the viability of the market.

According to a statement availed to the the press recently, AgriProFocus Zambia, in collaboration with the Poultry Association of Zambia (PAZ), has been assigned to implement the study in Zambia.

The study is aimed at providing basic information on the current and prospective poultry export markets for companies based in Zambia.

“Information about areas that hold investment potential in the poultry sector is very scant. In addition, very little is documented about the interest of Zambian investors in local and international poultry industry partnerships.

The statement says the study is a good initiative as it will identify strengths and opportunities within Zambia’s poultry sector, as well as identify opportunities for Dutch poultry business to trade and invest with Zambian partners.

"The statement says the study will also provide information on import tariffs and non-tariff measures on poultry products entering Zambia."

“The study will generate market intelligence on investment opportunities in the poultry sector to improve competitiveness of Zambian poultry in domestic and regional markets precursor to attract investment from Dutch businesses,” the statement says.
