The Kazakh government has greenlit a plan to boost domestic poultry production by 200,000 tonnes through 2026 thanks to the expansion of 4 major broiler farms.

Under the plan, the Development Bank of Kazakhstan will provide soft loans to prominent poultry farms Canadian Chicken Limited, Alel Agro, Prima Kus, and Aitas KZ to ramp up their production capacities in 2025 and 2026.

“Kazakhstan’s poultry production stands at 328,000 tonnes per year. The additional 200,000 tonnes will help resolve the import-dependence issue and kick off exports,” Kazakhstan’s prime minister’s office has said in a statement, adding that the Development Bank of Kazakhstan will fund 14 projects in the agricultural sector worth nearly 285 billion tenge (US$640 million) in total.
