MONROVIA – In what is seen as an avenue that could boost the Liberian economy through the agriculture sector, an agricultural company, the Liberian American Poultry (LAP), owned by some Lebanese nationals, recently embarked upon the production of eggs and plantain in Bomi County, Western Liberian.
Speaking to a team of journalists on Thursday November 24, 2022, the production manager of the company, who was simply referred to as Mr. Walid said the company is set and ready to supply the country with plantains and eggs on the Liberian market. Mr. Wali who made this known when he led the journalists on a guided tour of the facilities of the company in Bomi County stated that it will do its best to supply eggs and plantains in every part of the country. He stressed that the company was overly prepared to do everything humanly possible to bring its first productions on the Liberia market in the month of December 2022.
When asked about how much has been invested in the project so far, Walid declined to respond to journalists, however he said the company reached the decision to use it’s available resources to buttress the efforts of the pro poor agenda of President George Manneh Weah and also help make the country to be self-sufficient in food production.
He assured that the company will soon begin supplying the Liberian market in a few counties and that they will do everything within their reach to extend similar agricultural activities in the entire fifteen counties of Liberia.
The top management staffer said the company has sufficient chickens at the poultry which are ably producing on a daily basis close to ten thousand eggs and further assured the public that they will sustain the Liberian market.
