Our Work in Mexico
Across Mexico, malnutrition affects from 7 to 15 percent of the population. But in some parts of the country, more than 35 percent of children suffer from chronic malnutrition.
The added nourishment of poultry and eggs can go far to prevent hunger across the country, and many parts of Mexico have shown strong demand for poultry.
Heifer International has worked to improve livelihoods in Mexico since 1977, successfully teaching small-scale poultry farmers how to increase production for their own consumption and for sale.
Cargill teams have been at work in Mexico too, providing animal nutrition expertise and solutions to farmers and businesses across the country.
Hatching Hope in Mexico will continue to work with these small-scale producers to improve poultry production and living incomes. We will also help them connect to markets and increase awareness of the nutritional value of poultry.
Hatching Hope projects in Mexico are planned for the second half of 2019.
