Copacol Selects Petersime

06 August 2013

BRAZIL - Copacol (Cooperativa Agroindustrial Consolata) has selected Petersime to supply the incubators for its new hatchery in the state of ParanĂ¡.

After the recent inauguration of its new chicken slaughter facility, Copacol decided to increase its hatching capacity. For this project, the company has chosen Petersime’s single-stage Embryo-Response Incubation™ controlled technology.

The first stage of the project comprises an incubation capacity of approximately two million eggs per week. A combination of BioStreamer™ 24S and BioStreamer 12S incubators was chosen to reach this production capacity. The second stage of the project will increase the total capacity by more than 50 per cent of this initial capacity.

With 2013 being the year of its 50th anniversary, Copacol, headquartered in Cafêlandia, PR, Brazil, is a steadily growing organisation. Copacol exports products that comply with the strictest quality requirements to more than 40 countries - an excellent example of Brazil’s growing importance as a food-producing nation.

Francismar Sanches, Hatcheries & Breeder Manager of Copacol, commented: "We have visited other hatcheries and seen the potential of the technology Petersime is offering. We look forward to applying single-stage technology in our hatchery operations and experiencing the benefit throughout our entire poultry operation."

"We appreciate the strong local presence of Petersime in Brazil and we count on them to make this project a success. It is an important step in the further growth of our company," added Irineu Dantes Peron, Production Manager of Copacol.

Antonio Geraldo da Silva, Sales Manager of Petersime do Brasil, explained: "We are proud to have a company like Copacol amongst our customers. We will do our utmost best to meet and exceed their expectations within this hatchery project."
