Sovereign Food Investments Ltd (Sovereign Foods or the Company) announced this morning in a SENS announcement that it has detected avian influenza (AI) at a single layer house on a farm that forms part of the Company’s broader Uitenhage operations.
Approximately 5 000 birds have been culled, which represent approximately 1% of Uitenhage’s production pipeline. Sovereign Foods’ management is currently taking the appropriate steps and following the prescribed protocols to prevent AI from spreading to other farms.
