Eighty-six per cent hatch of set – that’s the promising result of the very first hatch at Galli Gallo’s brand new turkey hatchery located in Sinca Noua village, Brasov County, Romania. The hatchery has a yearly setting capacity of 3.3 million eggs and is equipped with Petersime’s state-of-the-art BioStreamer™ setters and hatchers.

The recent €2-million investment in the new turkey hatchery is unique in South-East Europe. The goal: to produce and deliver high quality poults at a low price per poult, with less or no mortality at the farm.

To achieve this, Galli Gallo commissioned Petersime to deliver the incubators: 8 BioStreamer™ 8S setters and two BioStreamer™ 8H hatchers, all equipped with the patented Embryo-Response Incubation™ technology.

A strategic location for the hatchery was chosen: far away from any other animal shelter or poultry farm and less than one hours’ drive away from the growing farms, for optimal bio-security.

Hatching eggs are delivered by Grelier (France) on a weekly basis.

Thanks to strict planning, most of the eggs are being incubated within two days after delivery, which contributes to the quality of the day-old poults.

Galli Gallo has a clear mission: "To raise the standards of turkey meat production in Romania, so that the final beneficiary, the consumer, has the certainty of healthy, high-quality products."
