    ZVISHAVANE - Stock feeds producing company Capital Foods popularly known as the Feedplus Centre has opened a new branch in Zvishavane.
    The Zvishavane branch becomes Capital Foods' 14th branch and the 35th outlet in Zimbabwe.
    Speaking during the official opening the company's Sales Director Mr Owen Nyoni said Zvishavane is one of the fastest growing business centers in the country and its dry climatic conditions are conducive for the development of livestock production.
    "As Capital Foods we want to be part of a growing economy. Zvishavane is one area where people are serious with poultry production so as Feed Plus Centre we are going to offer them the best stock feeds and healthy chicks at affordable prices. This is part of empowerment in line with ZimAsset," said Nyoni.
    Capital Foods produce and offers a wide range of stock feeds that include chicken, dog, horse, fish, pigs' feeds among others.
    The company is probably so far the only livestock feeds company that is offering free technical advice to farmers through Farmer Training programmes led by an Animal Scientist and Technical Advisor Mr Anesu Janyure.
    The Zvishavane branch has also been graced by the availability of Technical Service Manager Doctor Gabriel Chatukuta who is a professional veterinary doctor. Doctor Chatukuta shall be visiting farmers and livestock business people (SMEs to corporate sector) teaching about animal husbandry and care.
    Mr Nyoni said that Zvishavne FeedPlus Centre is going to operate as a one-stop shop where people will not only buy feeds but purchase day old chicks (broilers and layers). The company is in a partnership with Masvingo Chicks who are supplying day old Chicks.
    Masvingo Chicks operations executive Mr Munyaradzi Tavarera said his company shall be supplying over 5 000 birds every week and the number will continue to rise as Capital Foods gain popularity.
    "We shall supply 5000 birds every week to Zvishavane and this shall be the Ross breed which has a low mortality rate. The production of such a breed is easier for us as it is done at Bequest Farm, 20 kilometers out of Masvingo along Mutare road." He said.
    The new stock feeds shall also be selling agro chemicals and vaccines that are used in poultry and animal production.
