Our client in Mozambique has a chicken farm and slaughterhouse and was looking to integrate a feed mill into its operations to improve operational efficiency. We were asked to investigate whether the business case was feasible.

Technical support boosts our client’s skills and knowledge

Mozambique is a unique market where vertical integration of this sort is not common. To establish the business case required insight into the market, the existing business and the potential benefits offered by the proposed feed mill. Our business case analysis addressed the operation and general market situation to explore feasibility. In building the technical concept, we also identified opportunities to reduce operating expenditure.

One of the challenges facing our client was a lack of technical knowledge connected with building and operating a feed mill. We therefore supported our client on technical aspects, helping to extend knowledge and skills, and provided assistance during the tendering process for contractor and equipment suppliers.
