2.0  Introduction

The planned piggery is as a result of strong industry and needs assessment studies undertaken in owerri, Imo State by the promoters of this project. The studies reveal that the demand for piggery products is high while there are few piggeries to meet with the demand. Also, the bias that has hindered the consumption of pork by the population has gradually waned over the years that most individuals, today, consume pork. This has made the demand for piggery products to be rising at exponential rate. This expanding demand trend is expected to be sustained into the future.
