The general Membership of PAZ as well as other stakeholders in the Zambian poultry industry are notified that the Board of PAZ terminated Hybrid Poultry Farm (Zambia) Ltd’s membership with effect from 5th May 2017 due to noncompliance with the conditions of membership as enshrined in the constitution of the Association.
Arising from this development, Hybrid will no longer be participating in the activities of the Poultry Association of Zambia and also will not be collecting the Poultry Development Fund (PDF) contributions from farmers who buy their day old chicks from Hybrid. Since payment of PDF is the method of paying membership fees for small and medium scale farmers, all farmers who will be purchasing day old chicks from Hybrid with effect from May 2017, will be required to pay their PDF contribution directly to the Secretariat. The PDF contribution for the 2016/17 financial year is ZMK0.02 per day old chick. Farmers who purchase their day old chicks from hatcheries that are members of PAZ should ensure that their PDF payment is included on their invoice for each and every purchase. A copy of this will be required by the Secretariat prior to issuing them with a membership card. Hatcheries that are members of PAZ include Ross Breeders, Zamhatch, Tiger Chicks and Quantum Foods (formerly Bokomo). Be a proud member of the Poultry Association of Zambia which is the mouth piece of the poultry industry in Zambia. Poultry is the largest subsector of livestock in Zambia. Together we are the largest producers of animal proteins for the people of Zambia. Let us promote and protect the interest of the poultry industry in our country.
