28 August 2013

NIGERIA - The Aviagen® Arbor Acres® team and the Nigerian Arbor Acres Parent Stock (PS) distributor, CHI Farms Ltd, recently held a joint seminar in Ibadan, south-western Nigeria.

A total of 130 delegates, representing CHI’s PS customers, attended the one-day seminar.

CHI has been an Arbor Acres customer for over eight years, growing significantly in that time. The company has state of the art Grandparent facilities in Ibadan, Nigeria’s third largest city but the biggest by geographical area

Martin Middernacht, the Managing Director of CHI began proceedings by welcoming delegates, who, over the course of the day, were given a series of talks from speakers including Mohsen Ganjaei, Technical Service Manager and Alain Silvin, Arbor Acres International Sales Manager, amongst others.

Key topics up for discussion included maximising day-old chick numbers, vaccinations and farm biosecurity. Interactive sessions were also included which allowed delegates to share knowledge and ideas amongst each other.

Martin Middernacht said: “CHI enjoys a strong relationship with Aviagen and the Arbor Acres brand and it is with great pleasure and pride that we continue to be the biggest supplier of quality chicken and day old chicks to the Nigerian market.”

Mohsen Ganjaei added: “I am thrilled that this event, yet again, was a tremendous success. The outstanding efforts by our distributor CHI, supported by Aviagen’s technical and commercial service, goes a long way to strengthening the Arbor Acres brand in Africa.

“The product is performing very well in the market and we’re seeing the popularity of Arbor Acres continue to grow throughout Africa.”
