Abstract

New Horizons is a poultry farm located right outside of Nampula, Mozambique. New Horizons growth has continued to flourish since their merge with Frango King. Recently, New Horizons gained a shareholder and created a new partnership with Philafrica Foods. With these new partnerships, New Horizons is committed to maintaining their continuous growth over the coming years by leading with the importance of remaining unified in their mission. The process of integrating perspectives, enhancing managerial oversight, transferring valuable skills, and sharing valuable capacities, as are vital to a merger’s success. This process broken down to the simplest level, involves communication, transparency, and the transfer of company culture. New Horizons asked us to conduct a study that identified their key successes and failures of the merger in order to improve and streamline the process for further expansions. The qualitative data we collected could be implemented to ease the process for future growth and/or potential merger opportunities
