LDP Farms Food Corporation Signs Hatchery Expansion Deal with Petersime27 April 2013
PHILIPPINES - LDP Farms Food Corporation, supplier of day-old chicks to Philippine poultry integrator San Miguel, has signed an agreement with Petersime to expand their hatchery in San Fabian with an extra setting capacity of 576,000 eggs per week.
The agreement includes the purchase of BioStreamer™ 12S setters and BioStreamer™ 8H and 4H hatchers, as well as an expansion of the current HVAC system and of the IrisLink™ software.
LDP Farms Food Corporation is owned by the Lolim family and is engaged in a tolling partnership with the San Miguel Group - the number one poultry player in the Philippines. The LDP hatchery in San Fabian was built last year and had its first egg setting in September. Total capacity then amounted to 460,800 eggs per week. Both LDP and San Miguel reported to be very happy with the hatch results and with the training and support provided by Petersime during, before, and after installation (Hatchery Guidance ProgrammePLUS). Hence it was decided sooner than expected to more than double the hatchery capacity.
Construction works started at the beginning of April and installation of the Petersime equipment is planned in the summer of 2013.
