The value chain of broilers has been one of the fastest growing sectors in Zimbabwe in the past decade, with an estimated growth rate of 50% in three. However, after a period of macroeconomic decline compounded by an avian flu epidemic in 2017, the sector experienced an overall 10% drop in growth. While large producers have managed to avoid much of the impact, small and medium-sized producers (LSPs) have experienced a 14% drop in growth since 2014. However, the majority of broiler production is still done by small producers. and therefore their recovery is vital for an inclusive growth of the sector (about 6,000-6,500 tons per month).

The Inclusive poultry value chain development project is part of a complex and broad program of the National Government of Zimbabwe co-financed by the European Union which aims to develop a more diversified and efficient agricultural sector and which promotes environmental and social sustainability. The general objective of the project is to contribute to the construction of a more efficient poultry value chain and consequently increase the country’s economic and green growth.
