Agrotop to Present Vertical Integration Solutions for Extreme Heat at Nigeria Poultry Show

Agrotop, one of the leading providers of poultry turnkey projects in Africa, will present specifically designed solutions to resist hot temperature and varying humidity conditions at the NPS Abeokuta 2018 Show.

ABEOKUTA, NigeriaNovember 5, 2018 — Agrotop, a leading global player in livestock turnkey projects, will exhibit vertical integration solutions designed to resist extreme heat and adapt to varying humidity conditions at the Nigeria Poultry Show (NPS) 2018, which will take place November 6-8 in Abeokuta, Nigeria.

Agrotop, together with local Nigerian partner Agrited , will showcase its line of solutions for livestock construction projects which are ideal for medium and large enterprises at booths A-13, A-14, A-15, A-19.

Agrotop has acquired extensive experience in successfully completing complicated projects in difficult climate zones all over the world. The company has already completed several projects in Nigeria, including the Yola Project in the isolated Nigerian jungle. This greenfield integration project includes a hatchery and houses for broiler breeder pullets, broiler breeders, layer-breeder pullets and layer breeders, as well as commercial layer pullets and commercial layers.

Agrotop also built the Amo Farms 8 EC poultry houses and slaughterhouse, which runs a semi-automated line with the capability of 1,000 birds per hour and adheres to the highest European food industry standards. Its plug-in cooling units allow reliable and easy maintenance of cold storage.

“During the last year Agrotop has emphasized its leading position in the field of poultry vertical integration solutions in Africa,” said Gavriel Pelleg, Agrotop’s CMO and founding partner. “NPS provides us with an opportunity to further strengthen our position in the fast-growing West African market.”

This year alone Agrotop scored two large-scale poultry projects in Africa, together worth more than $100 million. The company was assigned by the government of the Republic of Sierra Leone to construct a large-scale layer and pullets farm. Comprised of 10,000 acres, the farm will produce 194.5 million eggs a year, supplying the entire needs of Sierra Leone’s population for accessible and low-cost protein.

Earlier this year, Agrotop was awarded a contract to develop a large-scale poultry integration project for Nutropia Poultry & Feed in Ethiopia, which will be one of the largest poultry farms in Africa and the Middle East. The new farm will eventually produce 24,000 tons of chicken meat per year.
