The Poultry Master Plan Investment Progress

The South African Poultry Association (SAPA) plans to expand the sector by investing a total of R900 million over the next two years, despite poor infrastructure across the country, the threat of disease outbreaks, imported poultry products and poor economic conditions in South Africa.

This is the last of R2.4 billion investment committed by the local poultry sector under the poultry master plan, which has already resulted in a 10% increase in production and the creation of 2 600 jobs.

The poultry sector was South Africa’s largest livestock production sector with annual sales of around R51 billion, while the egg sector was fourth with annual sales exceeding R11 billion.

Common challenges include high feed prices, poor infrastructure across the country, the ongoing threat of outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza and lower consumer spending.

In August 2022, Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition postponed the implementation of import duties against Brazil and four European countries until August 2023.
