The Nigerian poultry industry is estimated at ₦80 billion ($600 million) and is comprised of approximately 165 million birds, which produced 650,000 MT of eggs and 290,000 MT of poultry meat in 2013 and in , it has grown tremendously. From a market size perspective, Nigeria’s egg production is the largest in Africa (South Africa is the next largest at 540,000 MT of eggs) and it has the 2nd largest chicken population after South Africa’s 200 million birds.
It is a fact that Nigeria presently consumes 1.5 million MT of frozen chicken annually. As at 2014, the locally produced chicken was estimated at 300,000MT, a capacity utilisation of 46 percent in an industry that currently boasts of a 650,000MT installed capacity. In the same year, 1.2 million MT of frozen chicken, valued at N660 billion (equivalent to $2.75 billion) was imported.
Looking at this statistics, it shows that the demand for poultry product is so high and we are unable to meet demand locally. With the ban on importation of poultry products into the country, a huge market has been created for smart entrepreneurs to tap from this. Due to popular demand from young and aspiring entrepreneurs that have been seriously looking for funds and were asked to submit a business plan, I have decided to create a standard poultry farming business plan that covers rearing and selling of chickens, eggs and poultry waste/fertilizer.
