SOUTH AFRICA – Daybreak Foods, previously known as Afgri Poultry, has officially completed its name change and transition, solidifying its corporate presence in the competitive poultry market.

Under the leadership of newly-appointed chief executive Richard Manzini, Daybreak Management has successfully rebranded itself as Daybreak Foods after completing the necessary registration processes with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commision (CIPC).
