HATCHTECH PARTNERS WITH NORSK KYLLING

HatchTech is supporting one of Norway’s leading broiler producers with a new, large-scale hatchery project that it says is “raising the bar for chick quality and welfare”. The Hugaas Rugeri hatchery, which is owned by one of Norway’s biggest chicken producers, Norsk Kylling, is one of the first major hatcheries to implement the recently launched new HatchCare system. The system installed at the Hugaas Rugeri hatchery will offer an initial capacity of 19 million day-old chicks per year. Launched at the VIV Europe poultry and egg trade show in June, the new HatchCare system provides better climate conditions, improved uniformity, and a more user-friendly process. This latest upgrade also introduces reversed-fan technology.
