HasTavuk®, a poultry business in Turkey, will extend its layer hatchery operations in Sivrihisar, Eskisehir, with Smart™ technologies from Dutch supplier Pas Reform.
The new layer hatchery, fully equipped with SmartSet™ setters, SmartHatch™ hatchers and a complete line of ventilation systems, will have a capacity of 390,000 commercial layer chicks per week.
“It is our intention that this [hatchery] becomes one of the most modern facilities in Turkey, with sophisticated hygiene, disinfection, air-handling and ventilation systems,” says HasTavuk’s VP, Nejat Sezer.
Founded in 1972, Hastavuk is one of Turkey’s producers of layer- and broiler hatching eggs, day-old chicks, layer pullets and feed. A substantial proportion of layer and broiler hatching eggs and day-old chicks are exported to former CIS countries and the Middle East.
