Investment Opportunity

We plan to produce over 6 million broiler chickens in the first year, expanding to 50 million in 5 years. Funding needed for equipment. ROI: 30% to 35%.

The Company plans to produce about 6,000,000 broiler chickens in the first year, with the goal of producing 50,000,000 broiler chickens in five years. The Company will encompass 36 acres of arable land that will be used to incubate, process and transfer the chickens to the end-user in addition to planting and raising a host of different produce crops and animals.

At the onset of operations, the Company will have approximately 50 workers to assist with the day-to-day operations of the processing plant, 300 contract poultry and maize farmers and 30 distribution centers.

As an integrated poultry operation, the first of its kind in Ghana (hatchery, feed mill, contract farmers, processing plant, bulk purchase of veterinary products and distribution centers) the company hopes to reduce production cost considerably to be competitive with imported frozen chicken.

With a high demand for poultry products, and the country's inability to meet this demand, Ghana currently imports over 200,000 metric tons of frozen chicken which translate to over $300 million. This company plans to produce over 50,000 metric tons ($50 million) of fresh chicken, which is preferred by Ghanaians in the next five years of operation.

We currently have 10 member management team of professionals drawn from Ghana and the US with a combined 50 years of experience in poultry production and business management. We also hope to provide over 40,000 direct and indirect employment within the next five years.

Competitive Advantage

• As an integrated poultry operation, it is the first of its kind in Ghana.
• High demand for fresh chicken in country (over 200,000 metric tons).
• Dedicated consumer base.
• Over 300 contract farmers and 30 distribution centers.
• Lower production cost compared to imported chicken.
• Adequate space for operation and expansion (36 Acres of land).
• Potential to produce over 100,000 metric tons a year.

Rationale for the deal

Demand for poultry products in Ghana currently far outweighs local supply by over 200,000 metric tons each year and should continue to climb during the next decade for three important reasons.

First, as reported by FAO Production and Trade Year-books, “...the levels of poultry consumption are increasing throughout the world, and the increase in developing countries has been approximately double the world average.”

Second, due to a greater understanding of nutritional health poultry will continue to be a “go-to” source of protein. Also from FAO Trade Year books, “The recommended daily intake of protein is 12-60 gm/day depending on age and weight. Poultry products such as chicken have high protein content”.

Third, poultry (chicken especially) just tastes good and is an integral part of the Ghanaian’s diet and even has a solid place in cultural traditions and family events. We intend to provide not only the means to meet this growing need for fresh nutritious poultry, as an enterprise constructed on the “social business” concept model we exist to ensure the economic empowerment and sustainment of the members of the various communities we serve.
