Farmers need the most up to date information on how to grow chickens efficiently, economically, and most importantly to the standard that Sable and you, our customers’ expectations. This is why Sable invests a lot of time and effort to ensure that our poultry farmers are well equipped and prepared. We hold Farmers Training in preparation for each and every season. Training is critical for farmers because it enables them to share ideas and thoughts and get expert advice relevant to the season based on world-class standards. Farmers really benefit from the Sable contract and there is a high demand to become Sable growers. 

Our main aim is to improve farmer knowledge of new techniques and technologies in addition to providing farmers with any physical resources necessary to assist them to achieve world-class standards. Training dramatically increases the farmers’ level of productivity and understanding and ensures that we receive a product that meets all our standards.

Thank you to all our suppliers namely Hukuru Chicks, Pro Feeds, and Brand Agro, and most of all our farmers for their enthusiastic participation, maintaining our standards always and growing the tastiest chicken.
