Namib Poultry, a unit of Namib Mills, Namibia’s biggest miller, plans to invest 500 million Namibian dollars ($72 million) to build a poultry plant near the capital, Windhoek.
The plant is expected to slaughter 250,000 broilers a week, Gys White, general manager of Namib Poultry, said in an e-mailed reply to questions.
“Poultry broiler processing has been identified because no broilers are currently being processed in Namibia,” he said.
