Global Egg Schools
The IEF is continually committed to sharing the egg industry’s collective knowledge and expertise, to enable vulnerable communities to unlock the full potential of the egg.
Recognising the opportunity to support an increase in egg farming productivity and business success, the IEF launched its first Zimbabwe Global Egg School on 8 February 2022.
The programme was delivered to a broad range of participants who would not only directly benefit from the training, but would also have an instrumental role in further disseminating the learnt knowledge.
To continue supporting the communities within Nampula, Mozambique, the IEF launched its first Virtual Global Egg School on 7 July 2021 in partnership with Lohmann Breeders.
The aim of this virtual school was to provide participants with technical training to improve their understanding of crucial processes, to enable them to pass on this knowledge to their teams and other farmers in their community.
Working alongside industry partner Lohmann Breeders, the first IEF Global Egg School took place in June 2019 in Nampula, Mozambique.
The school provided technical training to 30 agricultural students from the Ebenezer Agricultural Training Centre and 40 local producers. This invaluable exchange of knowledge allowed participants to develop better, more sustainable sources of high-quality nutrition for their families and communities.
