"On the average, each broiler farm earned a gross profit of GHS 13,535 in 2015"
~Monitoring, Evaluation and Technical Support Services (METSS II), USAID
Poultry still remains the largest source of protein in most African homes. With the growing demand for high quality locally bred poultry and poultry products, local producers do not supply more than a quarter of the local demand. A majority of the poultry in the country is imported.
"Post estimates that Ghana's 2017 broiler meat production will reach 35,000 tons, supplying less than 25 percent of demand. Imports are expected to increase by 14,000 tons to 158,000 tons due to insufficient domestic supply and rising demand. U.S. poultry meat exports to Ghana hold over 35 percent market share."
