Mozambique in partnership with Globoaves, a Brazilian company that distributes,
breed and distributes fertile eggs and chicks.
Dirceu said that,
initially, chicken production would be on a family level, in a more structured
way, reducing production costs and that as results were achieved the business
could be expanded.
Globaves is already working with the government, via
the Ministries for Planning and Development, and Agriculture, as well as with
the first lady's office for execution of a family poultry breeding project and
setting up the feed factory in the country.

as poultry breeding, the Brazilian businesspeople are also interested in
investing in areas such as tourism, infrastructure development, trade,
