Ceva Says Innovation in the Hatchery Will Drive Growing Global Demand for Poultry Meat15 August 2013
FRANCE - Ceva, a major sponsor of the XVIIIth Congress of the World Veterinary Poultry Association (WVPA), will use this major worldwide event to share the latest innovations and expert knowledge in hatchery vaccination. It will launch Cevac IBird® a live, attenuated IB vaccine, to add to its portfolio of 16 new technology vaccines.
With the launch of the 'Perfect Pair' (Transmune® IBD & Vectormune® ND) in 2012, Ceva made it possible to protect against two major diseases, Newcastle and Gumboro with a single, combined dose of vaccines given in the hatchery. With the addition of Cevac IBird, infectious bronchitis can now also be brought under control from the hatchery.
In North and South America, almost all birds are already vaccinated in the hatchery. Increasing levels of automation, higher labour costs and the increased efficacy and safety offered by the new technology vaccines will accelerate this trend in all parts of the World.
Ceva has 16 new technology vaccines registered in key countries - more than the rest of the rest of the industry put together - but innovation means nothing, if this cannot be applied in the field. That is why the company has also invested in the provision of vaccination and handling equipment (Desvac and Ecat) and expert service programs (C.H.I.C.K Program) to ensure that poultry producers benefit from over 60 service managers working in 14 countries.
Dr Arnaud Bourgeois, Head of Ceva’s Biology Business Unit commented: "We are delighted to be able to support our partners, the WVPA, in bringing this important scientific gathering to our home country, France.
"I am very proud that we are also able to demonstrate so many significant innovations that will really benefit poultry producers. Combining excellence in scientific, industrial and market support is something we try to achieve each day and we must continue to work hard to drive further innovation in the future," added Dr Bourgeois.
