Congo: Self-sufficiency in poultry production hindered

Self-sufficiency in poultry and egg production around one of Africa’s largest cities is being hindered by a number of factors, according to a study produced by Dutch research specialists Wageningen Livestock Research. The study looked at current production, import and consumption of eggs in the area in and around Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, taking into account the DRC’s statistics which showed about 420,000 tons of chicken and 30,000 tons of eggs being imported into the capital in 2014.
