One of Ukraine’s largest producers of table eggs, PAO Poltavskaya poultry farm, has commissioned a new 20 million eggs per year Smart hatchery from Pas Reform, with plans for further expansion to 30 million eggs.

As part of the Inter-Agrosystems Group of companies, the new Poltavskaya hatchery will be located in the village of Machukhi, Poltavskaya region, joining a large integration that includes PS farms, eight commercial layer farms, six feed mills, slaughter houses and a brand new factory for feed additives, as well as logistics and final product sales.

“We chose Smart incubation systems from Pas Reform for many reasons, but especially for a narrow hatch window, and the ability to increase hatchery capacity from 20 to 30 million hatching eggs per year with minimum investment,” says Poltavskaya poultry farm director, Sergei Plakhotya. “We evaluated all the alternatives for both our current and future requirements, to establish the options for delivering and safeguarding our future plans for the business.

“Our aim is to increase capacity; to strengthen our existing facilities and capabilities. Our trusted partnership with Pas Reform is a significant contributor to achieving these goals.”
