New Ross GP project in Poland

Aviagen EPI has announced the signing of an agreement of cooperation with BroMargo, a leading Polish private poultry integration, on a Grandparent (GP) project in Poland.

The agreement will see the construction of state-of-the-art GP facilities, including rearing and laying farms, located near Poznan, Western Poland. Construction has already begun and the first placement of Ross chicks is scheduled for the beginning of 2011.

The contract signing took place on 18 May, 2010, at Aviagen’s Hilbersdorf Hatchery, following a tour of Aviagen’s flagship European facility and was attended by BroMargo owners Marek Stachowiak and Michal Schweiger, MD Jacek Beutler and Maciej Kolanczyk, Bromargo’s poultry consultant, as well as Patrick Claeys, General Manager Aviagen EPI, Dariusz Kulik, General Sales Manager for Aviagen EPI in Poland and Zbigniew Przybylski, Technical Manager in Poland.

Claeys: “This is an historic day for both companies. We are proud to be able to announce this partnership with BroMargo, one of Poland’s most respected poultry producers. We have a long-standing relationship with BroMargo… they were an obvious choice when we were looking for a partner for this venture… After a difficult period, the industry here in Poland is really expanding and this new farm will help us provide our customers with first class products and provide real security of supply to the market.”

Kulik: “The location of the GP project is perfect and meets our stringent biosecurity standards. Another vital factor is its proximity to our Hilbersdorf hatchery in Eastern Germany. Secure supply, chick quality and being close to our customers is the number one priority for Aviagen.”
