Aviagen is expanding its operations in Latin America

Content available in: العربية (Arabic)

The global poultry genetic company Aviagen sells grandparent and parent stock under Ross and Arbor Acres brands. The company recently has started to invest more in Brazil and Latin America to enhance and modernize hatcheries and farms.

The goal is to increase the production capacity because the greater market needs to have quality broiler breeder stock.

In Brazil alone, the company has invested R$ 62 million per year in the last years, growing in volume and revenue to continue to provide security of supply and quality support in the midst of consistent growth in the region.

The company’s expansion continues at an accelerated pace, with new investments in infrastructure and modernization, aiming to ensure the availability of quality poultry breeding stock to poultry producers throughout Latin America while improving support and service to them while breeding efficiencies that contribute to sustainable food production.


“Aviagen will keep investing in improving our production capacity due to a growing demand for the Ross 308 AP bird. The investments aim to secure the supply of high-quality birds to our customers”, explained President of Aviagen Latin America Ivan Pupo Lauandos.

Aviagen will move forward in Brazil by strengthening its supply of both high-generation breeding and broiler chickens. In 2022, the company plans to begin operation of a new Great Grandparent farm, likely in Sao Paulo state. Last year, Aviagen started a new production nucleus in its farm located in Natividade da Serra, Sao Paulo state. Both of these investments increased grandparent production and availability for the poultry market by 42.2% in the last three years.

The company will grow its production capacity and plans to add 2.1 million PS per year at the beginning of 2022.
