The ever-rising cost of Poultry Feed is a high risk to the Poultry Industry in Uganda. M/s Destiny Farms Limited (Destiny Farms) is an Out-Grower Farm that supplies Ready-To-Eat Broiler Chicken to M/s Ugachick Limited with a capacity to grow and supply 30,000 Broiler Chickens every 8 Weeks. However, the exorbitant cost of feed almost led to the closure of this business. M/s Ugachick Limited is the Leading Poultry Processing Company in Uganda.
Destiny Farms successfully applied for a USADF Grant of USD 50,000 to purchase a Tractor. The Tractor was meant to help grow Maize and Soybeans, as key ingredients in the formulation of Poultry Feeds. This way, Destiny Farms would substitute buying Maize with those from their Farm. The Tractor was bought, and the First Season of the harvest was realized.
The Grant is supervised by M/s Uganda Development Trust (UDET), USADF Partner in Uganda. UDET also provides Managerial, Technical, and Business Development Services to Grantees.
