The United States is keen on fostering a resilient and food-secure Pakistan, marked by a recent collaboration between the US Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and the Pakistan Poultry Association (PPA). On December 12, 2023, in Dubai, UAE, both parties ratified a memorandum of understanding (MoU), signifying a major leap towards bolstering Pakistan’s poultry industry.

Stan Born, Chairman of USSEC, reflects a global vision of cultivating partnerships within the soybean value chain. He emphasized the MoU’s role in steering joint efforts towards realizing the ambition of nutritional and food security. “This MoU is only the beginning,” Born stated, envisioning a nourished and more resilient Pakistan due to this collaboration.

Pakistan’s poultry sector, a predominant consumer of US soybeans, utilizes the high-quality, nutritious soybean meal as a staple in poultry feed. The distinctive attributes of US Soy — high protein, elevated energy, and superior digestibility — have significantly contributed to the exponential growth and efficiency of the country’s poultry farms.

Chaudhry Muhammad Ashraf, Chairman of the PPA, acknowledges the monumental impact of the USSEC and PPA partnership. He reaffirmed PPA’s commitment to premium quality and expressed optimism about the future prosperity of Pakistan’s poultry industry with the continuous supply of US Soy.

The MoU outlines a framework for both organizations to exchange market insights, boost demand for soybean meal in poultry diets, and enhance industry capacity. The initiative aims not only to augment the poultry industry’s growth but also to ensure a sustainable and reliable supply chain, thereby contributing to Pakistan’s broader goal of food security and nutritional adequacy.
