Visiting Rwanda, Tyson CEO Donnie Smith talks to Matthew Karugarama, one of our Rwandan Scholars, a recent University of Arkansas-Little Rock graduate and Tyson intern. Also pictured is Tom Phillips from Memphis who has built Rwanda’s largest commercial egg farm – a business as mission with 10,000 laying hens. One of the missing links in Rwanda’s agriculture sector is its lack of a commercial animal feed mill, a business essential to increasing the country’s production of meat, eggs and milk – foods important for healthy children – and to thousands of livestock and crop farmers in Rwanda. Bridge2Rwanda is excited about the opportunity to provide a private sector solution to this challenge.
