Afghan Meyar is established in Gul Bagh, District, 7th, Shah Mahmood khan Garden, Kabul Afghanistan on a 44,000 square meter site. Afghan Meyer will become known as the largest and most modern layer poultry farm in Afghanistan and will be fully operational with eggs sold from July 2019, with stocking by day-old-chicks planned for March 2019.
The farm has capacity to produce 170,000 eggs daily, and expanded to proposed capacity, it will double production and satisfy a major part of egg demand in Afghanistan. Facilities can produce 7% of the total national egg demand, but more significantly it will contribute to supplies of table eggs to the urban centers which are estimated to require 235.5 million table eggs for those urban centers where local supplies are deficient.
Construction of the integrated poultry unit and feed mill is happening in two phases. The first began in July 2018 and will be completed in February 2018 with completion of the Brooding house, egg layer units, the egg packing plant and staff facilities. The second will then follow with construction of the feed mill.
Afghan Meyer will then not only increase its production and income from poultry products but will also is focus on serving the people with safe, quality product, support local and regional economic growth, and create gainful employment for upwards of 500 people.
The Poultry Farm Manager will work under the direct supervision of Afghan Meyar Management team and will constantly liaise with technical team result based management of the farm. He will be responsible for the training and technology transfer to the skilled and unskilled workers of the farm in order to increase the poultry farmers’ incomes through the effective delivery of project outcomes. He will mainly be responsible for technically supporting the Commercial Layer farms activities.
