2014 - Botswana

Pig

The SMART Botswana 2014 team worked with FoodNet Holdings (Pty) Ltd, a growing piggery farm in Bokaa, about 35km from the capital of Botswana, Gaborone. Since the company was founded, the farm has grown from 4 pigs bought on impulse at a local livestock auction to nearly 100 pigs in total. FoodNet primarily sells pork carcasses to retailers and wholesalers. Individuals are supplied with whole carcasses or portions on request. FoodNet Holdings also has hosted trainings for individuals interested in starting pig farms in partnership with the Botswana Ministry of Agriculture.
