CONNECT’s business partner, STOS has added eight poultry farmers to their downstream supply chain. Demand for fresh poultry meat within Doti exceeds STOS’s ability to deliver from their existing downstream suppliers and the shortfall is met by importing poultry from Terai districts. Additionally, demand for subsidized poultry feed, a benefit STOS is able to offer to farmers in their supply chain, is strong and growing. Hence, with support from CONNECT, STOS are expanding and have identified eight farmers to join their supply chain.
