SEDIMA Meets With Agric Minister On Measures To Boost Poultry Production.
The Founder and President of Sedima Group, Mr. Babacar Ngom was in Ghana on 6th May with his team of investors offering opportunities to enable Ghana attain self-sufficiency in poultry production.
Sedima Group is a Senegalese business in Dakar deployed in agro-business, flour mills, poultry and real estate. It is one of the leading companies offering services in several fields in Senegal and the sub-region with a primary focus on the poultry sector. The group is willing to partner with local and foreign investors in Ghana to see this project through.
According to Mr Ngom, the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic on the African economy has necessitated a deeper dive into issues of food production, sustainability and security in the Agricultural sector. Prior to this, there is a need to improve various areas in the food industry.
The group, on their mission to achieve food self-sufficiency will make chicken and eggs accessible through the use of quality poultry inputs including chicks, feed and equipment. Apart from poultry production in Ghana, they will concurrently venture into poultry feed production using mainly maize and soya. The feed forms about 70% of the total cost of poultry production hence, the concentration on these two areas will have a great impact on the sector.
