SKAB Elevage: distributor of NOVOGEN in Cameroon
With an estimated population of 6 million layers for about 27 million inhabitants, Cameroon is the main egg-producing country in Central Africa.
In search of a distributor in Cameroon, NOVOGEN and SKAB Elevage have finalised a partnership agreement for the production and distribution of NOVOgen BROWN strain on the Cameroonian territory.
This partnership, based on strict production specifications, aims to provide the market with a quality chick having a genetic potential adapted to local characteristics.
The NOVOgen BROWN strain stands out for its high productivity combining egg quality, feed efficiency, calm behaviour and robustness in both cage and floor production.
The partnership also provides for on-site and videoconference training by NOVOGEN teams for Skab’s internal employees (biosafety, management, hatchery, etc.) as well as for the technical team in charge of monitoring layer customers.

Guénaël Guillaume, NOVOGEN Area Manager for Africa Middle East zone: “We are delighted with the partnership set up with the Skab Elevage. The performance of the NOVOgen BROWN strain as well as the professionalism of the Skab Elevage team brings genuine added value to Cameroon egg producers.”
Alain Kenmegne, Director of SKAB Elevage “This partnership with NOVOGEN reflects our ambition to provide the Cameroonian market with an excellent genetic potential coupled with a high-quality chick and a high-quality customer service. To this end, we regularly organise “video training” sessions for our teams in collaboration with NOVOGEN. We also plan to do this soon with our customers”.
