technical training programmes

The IEF is continually committed to sharing the egg industry’s collective knowledge and expertise, to empower vulnerable communities to unlock the full potential of the egg.

Training not only enables the expansion of local production and consumption of eggs but also creates new jobs and supports disadvantaged individuals to become sustainable operators in the value chain.

Attendees of IEF training programmes gain the ability to self-maintain their farms and pass on their knowledge to other egg farmers, encouraging project sustainability and extending positive impacts into the wider community. One trained farmer can provide 30,000 people with an egg a week, significantly improving their nutritional health.

Training Programme, South Africa 2022

IEF Global Egg School 2022

The IEF was delighted to provide a day of expert training on 'The Fundamentals of Successful Egg Production' in July 2022, in collaboration with the South African Poultry Association (SAPA) and the KwaZulu-Natal Poultry Institute (KZNPI).

The tailored programme was delivered as part of SAPA and KZNPI's 5 day Commercial Layer Management Course to emerging commercial egg farmers in South Africa.

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.

IEF Virtual Global Egg School 2021

IEF Global Egg School 2019

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.
