Boost for backyard poultry sector in Cambodia
As part of its “poultry project of national pride in Cambodia” for 2021 to 2026, 21 transport vehicles and nearly half a million dollars’ worth of infrastructure have been handed over to 21 agriculture cooperatives in the country.

In support of local farmers and communities, NGO Heifer International Cambodia’s handover included 3 cold chain trucks, 4 non-cold chain trucks, 14 cold chain motorcycles, as well as 5 community market and collection centres, 3 offices for agricultural cooperatives, and 2 cold-storage warehouses.

According to HIC Cambodia director, Nhem Sareth, the poultry project for national pride in Cambodia comprises 4 components, which are:

* Improved institutional capacity of agricultural cooperatives
* Increased access to impact capital to scale agribusiness of smallholder farmers
* Increased production and supplies high quality agri-product (backyard chicken meat) in the market
* Enhanced large market system and distribution

The goal of the project is to scale up the development of the Cambodian backyard chicken sector, he said, and to increase access to impact capital for smallholder farmers to improve agribusinesses, boost production and supplies of backyard chicken meat, and improve distribution efficiency.

Sareth noted that the project will directly benefit over 53,000 households in 11 provinces, “increasing family incomes and significantly contributing to increased supplies of Khmer backyard chicken eggs, chicks, chicken fattening operations, and domestic chicken processing and packaging, as well as playing a part in reducing chicken imports from neighbouring countries.”
