The name Ganjo Hatchers Enterprises Limited has been in existence since 2008, however it’s roots go back much further to the pioneering days of the Kenya poultry industry of the early 1970’s.
The current maximum setting capacity of the hatchery is 20,000 eggs per week. These eggs are all produced in South Africa. A major refurbishment / expansion of the hatchery have recently been implemented to increase the capacity to 65,000 per week. The hatching machines will also be renewed to top of the range machines. The eggs are incubated for 18 days and then transferred to the hatchers for 3 days. Ganjo hatch chicks on every Friday of the week and with an estimated hatch of 80% will produce approximately 24,000 chicks per week.
Ganjo Hatchers is planning to develop into a fully integrated poultry company comprising all the stages of feed milling, breeding, hatching, rearing and processing.
