New Cobb sales structure in Brazil
As the new $4.5 million parent stock hatchery in
Mato Grosso do Sul begins production, Cobb-Vantress Brazil has announced changes
to the future distribution of the breed.
With the growth of Globoaves as a broiler integrator and
chicken exporter as well as hatching egg producer, the company will no longer be
the sales arm for the Cobb 500 from 1 January 2007 but will obtain their Cobb
parent stock through a new partnership with Agrogen Desenvolvimento
Agrogen, Cobb's largest grandparent customer in the world,
will provide Globoaves with their parent stock needs and Globoaves will maintain
the Cobb breed within their organisation.
Globoaves' growth in the
Brazilian industry has seen them develop from an independent chick producer to
the largest hatching egg producer in Latin America, and subsequently expand into
chicken production and exporter of chicken meat.
