Museveni Launches Farm Producing ‘One Million Eggs Daily’

President Yoweri Museveni Friday commissioned four factories under the Balaji Group of Companies in Luweero. These are Premier Distilleries, SR Afro Chicks & Breeders and Atis Biscuits & Mineral Water under Balaji Group EA Ltd.

“Combined, the Balaji Group of Companies employs close to 3,000 people, uses 90% of locally-procured raw materials and pays annual tax of over Shs10 billion. Some of their products are exported to regional markets,” Museveni said, adding:

“I thank investors like the Balaji Group for not only setting up factories here and creating opportunities for our people, but also helping wake up our people to appreciate entrepreneurship.

I am impressed by their investments especially SR Afro Chicks & Breeders in Yandwe, Luweero, with a total production capacity of 1 million eggs day plus related poultry by-products. They will help us solve the problem of importing chicken feed from Kenya.”

Museveni said on his way to Luweero, he noticed that people had invaded wetlands.

“ I direct all concerned authorities to ensure these people leave the wetlands. Let us not destroy our environment, which has lots of other negative spill-over effects,” he said.
