The Zimbabwe Poultry Farmers Union (ZPFU) is set to hold the first poultry industry exhibition in the country on 26 October on Harare.

Posting on its Facebook page, the union indicated that the show, named Zim-Poultry Expo, will be held at the Farm and City parking lot which is located at the corner of Robson Manyika Avenue and Simon Vengai Muzenda Street i in Harare under the theme: “Bringing back profitability through networking.”

The event, which is expected to bring together most stakeholders in the poultry industry where they will share notes, is set to be graced by the Deputy Minister of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement, Vangelis Haritatos.

“We welcome you all to the Zim Poultry Expo 2019. It is going to be a wonderful event with exhibitors from all sectors of the poultry industry. (These will include suppliers of) feed, equipment, day-old chicks and lots more,” posted the ZPFU.

The union highlighted that the event presented an opportunity for poultry farmers to meet and engage suppliers and other stakeholders.

“Come, meet and talk to manufacturers and the suppliers of various goods and services that you use daily in your poultry business,” the union said.

The ZPFU union also stressed that the exhibition also presented an opportunity for poultry farmers to learn of new development and trends in the industry in order to grow their operations and profits.

“The show is a chance for poultry farmers to see new innovations and trends in the poultry industry which they can adopt, adapt and use in their own businesses to grow their businesses,” the union said.

Some people who responded to the message such as the day-old chicks dealer,

Desire Chimhandamba, praised the union for the event.


“Keep on doing such interactions. You will uplift the growers. (I am) expecting more of these initiatives,” Chimhandamba posted.


Daniel Chingwaro, a civil servant and poultry farmer, welcomed the show and expressed hope that the event would enable him to join the ZPFU.

“I’m very happy for such an event which I having been longing for all along,” he said.


The ZPFU, which was formed early this year, confirmed that it would also use the show to introduce itself to the farming community and the market in general and to drive membership recruitment. It further indicated that the exhibition would mark the commencement of other activities such as workshops that would benefit its members and other stakeholders.
