Eggs from Sepik project to hit shelves in a year’s time

Eggs produced in Yangoru-Saussia District, East Sepik Province, will be hitting store shelves in 12 months’ time.

That is the guarantee from the developer of the Sepik Chicken, Grain and Cocoa project, Innovative Agro Industry (IAI).

IAI chairman Ilan Weiss said the eggs will be the first produce from the project to be sold and could be hitting the shelves in June or July 2017, followed by chickens.

The surrounding communities will greatly benefit from the project because majority of the stock feeds’ source of cassava and corn, and also chicken, will be bought from outgrowers to support the factory supply.

Yangoru-Saussia MP and Trade, Commerce and Industry Minister Richard Maru, said yesterday during the project launching that ground works will happen in three months’ time.

The project site will be located at Haripmo Village.

Kumul Consolidated Holdings Limited (KCHL) will hold the State shares in the K55 million project.
