We pride ourselves in being truly development oriented. We have played a significant role in developing the small scale poultry industry and increasing the consumption of protein.
Our aim is to:
Introduce the latest methods in livestock production;
Increase protein production and consumption in Zambia;
Help Zambia achieve household food security;
Support the local crop chemical industry & feed manufacturers; and,
Transforming small scale farmers into commercial farmers.
We are distributors for Bayer, MSD, Pfizer (Zoetis), Virbac, & numerous manufacturers of very specialized products.
We support the local crop chemical industry & feed manufacturers. Seeing the need for an independent diagnostic laboratory, AgriVet was instrumental in bringing the local livestock industry together to establish Zambia’s first privately owned Vet. Diagnostic Facility, Vetlab Zambia Ltd which was recently sold to another S. African company, Deltamune who specialize in diagnostics.
In 2003, Zambia produced approx. 23 Million Broiler Chicken & in 2015, they produced approx. 77 Million Broiler Chicken – we have played a significant role in increasing protein consumption. We believe we have been a catalyst to many marginalized individuals who have shifted from being back yard farmers to emerging commercial farmers.
