Over 240 small and disadvantaged South African poultry farmers have learned new business and farm and financial management skills in a series of workshops as part of a World Poultry Foundation (WPF) programme supported with grants by United States government.

The programme saw stakeholders partnering with Pretoria-based Franchising Plus to implement training designed to improve production and management models among emerging poultry farmers.

Eight workshops on financial management and sustainable farming methods were undertaken around South Africa, with support from US Department of Agriculture (USDA), a South African financial institution, and the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), with the support of the KwaZulu Natal Poultry Institute (KZNPI) and the Future Farmers Foundation of South Africa.
