Engaging local partners to develop sustainable feeds in Zambia
- Impact Area
Zambia faces a huge challenge in terms of local aquatic feed supply, particularly for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The cost of the feed is exorbitantly high for most SMEs to afford, leading to some sacrificing quality. The high cost of aquatic feed has been attributed mainly to the import of feed ingredients. In some cases, farmers must travel long distances to obtain the commodity.
