Investment opportunity: Awari Poultry


Awari Poultry is a local SME business specializing in Layer Poultry Farming that involves raising egg-laying poultry birds for Commercial Egg Production. Awari Poultry, owned and managed by a local woman entrepreneur, was established in 2018 and the company is based in Banz, Jiwaka Province.

Since its establishment, Awari has been serving various customers within the Banz area who have a demand for both poultry birds for meat and fresh eggs that are being produced daily. The objective of this project is to expand the production capacity of this poultry business to serve the increasing level of demand from within the Jiwaka province as well as the demand from the neighboring highlands provinces.

To realize this poultry layer farming expansion project, Awari Poultry is seeking to partner with potential investors to help support the establishment of an additional production facility and the establishment of a storage or distribution/ sales outlet as well as the purchasing of new machinery and equipment. Some of the materials that will be purchased include, and are not limited to, roll wires, feeders and drinkers, sawn timber for making egg boxes, a tuffa tank for water storage, light for the poultry shed and stock feeds. This farming business also seeks business partners for other types of collaboration to access new markets (domestic or international buyers), access production materials and components at affordable prices, and access technology and know-how expertise for the employees who will be employed under this expansion project. This project is expected to create employment for women and youths while it will also serve as a source of income for many families in the local community.

Project strengths

The poultry industry in PNG generates over K800 million annually and more than 80% of this is produced by out-grower farmers living in villages in rural areas. In addition, the poultry industry in PNG formally employs around 3,000 people, 90% of whom are women. Awari Poultry is one of the experienced poultry operators in the Banz constituency.

Awari is an established member of a chick/chick feed supplier and poultry farmers network in the province. Awari often deals directly with operators who provide various services such as the provision of guidelines and continuously updated information vital to effectively compete in the market. Furthermore, there are a very limited number of competitors and fewer resources are expected for the marketing and promotion of our products. The main competitor is the Christian Leaders’ Training College in Banz, which is a renowned poultry/ egg supplier in the Highlands Region. There are few other out-grower farmers in the province but Awari already has established buyers with high demand that surpasses the supply. A limited number of competitors, high profitability, no marketing expense, and not easy entry show that the poultry farming business has a very stable business environment it will pay off well. Other project strengths include the availability of land and local labor to produce fresh eggs/meat that is affordable and accessible to various types of buyers.
