The Poultry Value Chain Fair (POVAC)
The Poultry Value Chain Fair (POVAC) is an annual exhibition and conference, aimed at promoting the poultry industry and also, addressing the non-competitiveness of Ghana’s poultry sector, resulting mainly from high production costs due to high cost of inputs and limited supply/availability of quality inputs.
Goals of Project:
Create sustainable market linkages between the Poultry Value Chain (PVC) actors at both the supply and demand ends
Provide poultry farmers with access to relatively cheaper / quality sources of inputs which would result in the reduction of their production cost.
The first Poultry Value Chain Fair (PVCF) was held in March, 2017 at Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
- To encourage and develop leadership in students.
- Provide students from agric colleges, universities and institutions a platform to discuss their fears, anxieties, expectations and challenges and help shape their views and understanding of agribusiness, encourage, motivate and award agri-initiatives.
- Provide a unique platform for employers, farmers’ group, researchers, government agencies, funders and students to network, educate, exchange knowledge and gain insight into the context of the youth’s involvement and career options in agriculture.
- To connect students to mentors in the agribusiness space who would be a source of guidance to help students develop their initiatives or innovations or provide them mentorship/internship or employment opportunities.
