A new poultry slaughtering plant has been commissioned in Cameroon with a capacity to produce more than 3,000 chicken a day.

The multi-billion plant in Bafang, West Region, known as the Cameroon Poultry Products Plant, SPAC, is receiving government financial backing to the value of African Financial Community Francs (FCFA) 500 million.

The country’s Minister of the Economy, Planning and Regional Development, Louis Paul Motaze insisted that only chicken raised following certain standards will be accepted by the plant and all in conformity with international standards and norms.

Motaze, who  hopes that the project will help curb rural exodus among the young, urged local poultry farmers to ensure that the supply of chicken is not interrupted in order not to disappoint the plant’s customers.
