Hybrid Poultry Farm Profile

Hybrid Poultry Farm was established in 1961, primarily as a breeding company. Since then,
it has evolved to become a large, integrated poultry business, able to meet much of
Zambias entire demand for chicken products.

The companys Head Office is in Chamba Valley, Lusaka, with a Copperbelt branch
operating in Kitwe to cover the growing demand in the Northern Provinces. The company
owns several breeder and broiler farms, located in bio-secure locations at Kabwe,
Chisamba, Kitwe and Lusaka. To service the demands of the company and its day-old chick
customers, Hybrid owns and manages two commercial hatcheries, one in Lusaka and one in
Kitwe, thus offering the freshest day-old chicks to all areas of Zambia.

After half a century of chicken production in Zambia, Hybrid Poultry Farm is proud of the
unparalleled depth of experience that its employees can offer customers. Our Day-Old Chick
breeds are of high quality and resistant to disease, with superior production. Significant
achievements include complete traceability of its products (Farm to Family), and the
empowerment of the many farmers who participate in its out-grower scheme. Our farming
practices not only conform to Zambias standards, but to European Union and World Health
Organisation requirements.

Three important factors distinguish the company from other Day-Old Chick suppliers:

- We breed and supply high-quality chicks to thousands of poultry farmers in the

- We are custodians of a strong and vibrant consumer brand.

- We place the highest priority on the humane treatment of the birds we farm.

Our customers are at the heart of our business. We are committed to empowering poultry
farmers and creating livelihoods that can be passed down from one generation to the next.
With us, you can trust that you are getting the best quality chicks and the support you need
to succeed.
