Kenneth Quartey

Kenneth Quartey

Kenneth has been involved in poultry and livestock farming for over 30 years. In 1983, a time when most young Ghanaians sought to leave Ghana, Kenneth returned from the United States to run Sydals, a small family owned poultry farm that also bred horses and livestock. With Kenneth at the helm, Sydals grew from a small-scale operation with about 40 employees to a company employing 145 individuals at its peak.  Sydals is considered one of the largest such operations in Ghana and is at the forefront of industry modernization.

Kenneth was Chairman of the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers (GNAFF) for eight years where he played the lead role in lobbying and advocacy on industry-wide issues. Under his leadership, the first-ever conference of West African Poultry Farmers was organized and held in Accra. Kenneth graduated from the University of Nebraska with a B.Sc. in Animal Science in 1983. He is a Member of the National Forum on Education and a Fellow of the founding class of the African Leadership Initiative under the Henry Crown Fellowship. Kenneth is an avid golf and polo player and has captained the Ghanaian polo team on several occasions.
