Local partner Dreamland Company is active in the trade of table eggs in Yemen. The trade is very basic. The eggs are sold in the retail shops no different as they were packed on the farm, without any conditioned transport or storage in between. Together with applicant Shuman Poultry Production and Marketing S.A.L. from Lebanon, they intend to set up a table egg distribution chain in which eggs are properly treated, sorted and eventually washed before they are placed in retail shops. They will introduce a chain control programme mainly aimed prevention of the occurrence of the most harmful Salmonella varieties.

The partners will set up a joint venture. The egg packing facility will be situated in Sana’a, the sourcing of table eggs will mainly be from Taiz region. The customers will be supermarkets and shops mainly in Sana’a. The partners will introduce their own brand for this. For specialist knowledge on egg handling and egg quality, the partners intend to hire a Dutch specialist. Specialist veterinary expertise will be employed as well. They will train farmers, farm advisors and veterinary / laboratory staff that will be employed by the joint venture.

The project is a first step in Yemen to improve food safety in the table egg chain. In the project, knowledge will be transferred to farmers and employees of the joint venture on food safety aspects of table eggs. The sale on unhealthy eggs will be banned. The knowledge and experiences in the project will be shared with authorities and universities.
