In sping 2014, the U.S. Grains Council launched the Tanzanian Food for Progress program, building on its success in other livestock and feed improvement programs throughout the world. The program has three goals:
• Promote quality feed formulations for poultry
• Develop self-sufficient industry associations for poultry producers and feed manufacturers
• Improve broiler (poultry raised for meat) and layer (poultry raised for eggs) production through training seminars
Through the Food for Progress program in Tanzania, the Council hopes to develop a strong, self-sufficient poultry and feed manufacturing industry. By ensuring quality feed ingredients through the government feed quality laboratory and developing industry associations that help producers utilize quality feed to its fullest potential, the Council’s program will help poultry producers improve their operations and increase the confidence of consumers in the quality of poultry from Tanzania.
In order to fulfill its mission of building markets for America's grains, the U.S. Grains Council operates 10 international offices as well as its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Please contact international staff in the Washington office first. Washington staff will know who is available to provide the best and quickest response to your questions.
