First single-stage Smart hatchery project in Philippines
Bounty Fresh Foods Inc. (formerly Tyson Agro) has
elected to install its new broiler hatchery project in Cagayan d'Oro, Mindanao,
This installation includes single-stage, closed-door Smart Incubators from
the Dutch incubation equipment supplier Pas Reform.
The new hatchery, which is the first single-stage operated broiler hatchery
in the Philippines, will produce 200,000 day-old chicks per week in its first
phase, and will be operational as from June 2007. Bounty Fresh has installed
SmartSetâ„¢ setters, SmartHatchâ„¢ hatchers and Pas Reform's hatchery ventilation
â€œWe have been looking at the introduction of single stage incubation in our
broiler operation for some time now,â€ explains Tennyson Chen, president of
Bounty Fresh. Now, with improvements and developments both in genetics and in
single-stage methodology, Bounty Fresh is excited about introducing single stage
incubation practice in Mindanao for the first time.
