KATHMANDU: Poultry farmers not having easy access to the market for their products have been relieved of their problems as an industry has started purchasing eggs from farmers at their doorsteps across the country.
Kisan Dana Udhyog based in Chitwan district has started this service with the objective of helping farmers save their money spent on commission for taking their products to the market, and also helping customers get access to fresh and healthy eggs, according to the company.
Kisan Dana Udhyog has opened its branches across the country.
A poultry company, Daunne Agrofarm has been opened in Nawalparasi with the investment of the company. It has raised around 300,000 layer chickens. On a daily basis, the agro farm produces more than 136,000 eggs which are supplied to its customers at their doorsteps. Similarly, the company collects the same amount of eggs from farmers.
The company has opened 10 depots across the country so far to facilitate the supply of eggs to its customers, according to the company executive director Binod Pokhrel. “We aim to open at least 20 other depots in main cities of the country. Now we have been supplying eggs to the areas where our depots have not been opened,” he said.
