Poultry: Kara’s agro-hub will have slaughterhouses with a capacity of 1,000t-1,500t per hour

(Togo First) - The Kara agro-hub will have poultry slaughterhouses with a processing capacity of 1,000t-1,500t per hour, at peak production levels.

The agro-hub which is yet to be operational will also be equipped with poultry transformation and conditioning facilities. The hub’s hatcheries are forecast to produce nearly three million broiler chicks per year.

At its cruise phase, yearly processing capacities at Kara’s agropole are projected at 90,000 tons, 15,000 tons and 10,000 tons, for rice, maize feed and soybeans, said Essowè Batana, acting director general of the Agency for the Promotion and Development of Agropoles in Togo – APRODAT.   Sesame and cashew will also be processed at a later period. For the first, 10,000t/y is expected to be processed while for cashew, 20,000t should be processed on a yearly basis. The forecasts’ effective implementation depend on investors’ decision.

The Kara agropole which is expected to be completed by the end of 2022 is the pilot of a larger project aimed at structurally transforming Togolese agriculture, with a focus on exporting locally-processed products.
