NSPDT’s smallholder community poultry model enables poor women in rural India to start and run successful poultry enterprises.
Big Opportunity in Poultry
The Indian poultry meat industry, which annually produces 2.3 million tonnes (FAOSTAT, 2010), is the fifth largest in the world and one of the most competitive. Per capita meat consumption at 1.8 kg/ year (GoI, 2010) is much lower than the 11 kg recommended by the Nutrition Advisory Council
