Morocco: Turkey producer begins broiler production

Maroc Dinde, Morocco's largest turkey producer, is diversifying into broiler production assisted by Dutch hatchery technology company Pas Reform.

The group, headed by owner Mr. Abdelmoulah has signed an agreement for the development of a new green field hatchery, where Pas Reform’s Smart modular, single stage system will be introduced to optimise broiler incubation from day one. The new installation will include SmartSet™ setters, SmartHatch™ hatchers, hatchery automation systems and hatchery climate control systems.

The new broiler hatchery will be built in 2 phases. On completion, the hatchery will have the capacity to produce 600,000 day-old broilers per week.

“While we are experienced in rearing turkeys, it is a new challenge for us to expand the business in this way,” says Abdelmoulah, “For us, Pas Reform is the best partner to fulfil these requirements – and with such specialised expertise in hatchery climate control, hatchery automation and hatchery project management, we anticipate our new broiler hatchery will deliver in line with these ambitious plans.”
