AVIAN INFLUENZA UPDATE
 
 
Quantum Foods shareholders are referred to the SENS
 
announcement released on 20 September 2017 confirming that an
 
outbreak of highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (“AI”) had been
 
confirmed at two commercial layer farms in the Western Cape.
 
Shareholders were informed that as a preventative measure,
 
management decided to depopulate two entire sites and not only
 
the specific houses at which the AI was detected.
 
 
Despite this preventative action taken and substantial
 
measures implemented to contain the further spread of the AI
 
at our operations, AI was confirmed on 27 September and 30
 
September 2017 respectively, in some poultry houses on the
 
remaining two sites of the Lemoenkloof commercial layer farm
 
in the Western Cape. These two sites have been quarantined and
 
will be depopulated in totality in an attempt to prevent the
 
further spread of the disease.
 
 
The two sites represent 8% of the national egg supply of the
 
Group, resulting in a total of 17% of the Group’s national egg
 
supply now being affected by the AI.
 
 
The Company is progressing with the re-introduction of current
 
dormant assets in order to mitigate some of this lost egg
 
production capacity. Some of these facilities will already be
 
populated with layer hens before the end of October 2017.
 
 
Shareholders will be informed of any further significant
 
developments.
