This includes but not restricted to commercial feed millers, service providers and all those that are involved in the entire Poultry production value chain.



The mandate of the Association is to initiate and stimulate profitable development in poultry farming for the benefit of all Stakeholders and the Nigerian economy thereby putting high quality poultry products on the table of Nigerians at affordable prices.

The above we do by liaising and partnering with the Government for robust and friendly poultry policies and conducive production and business environment.

We strive as much as possible to pre-empt the action of government on issues of critical importance before policy pronouncements are made because reversals will be more difficult.
-     Engage in advocacy and lobbying as well as build the capacities of all categories of poultry producers so that they can be abreast of the latest technology and management.

At the moment, the Association is the most credible and outstanding commodity Association in the Nigerian agricultural economy, as well as being the only authentic voice and mouth piece of the Nigerian Poultry producers.
