The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Emerging Markets Program funded the travel of the African delegation.

Executive Director Jim Hershey also met delegations from Ghana and other WISHH stakeholders, such as Kansas State University and Iowa State University.

Ghana, Senegal and Nigeria all import U.S. soy protein and a growing demand for poultry products suggests further market growth.
