Honour for Jamaica Broilers Chairman

03 October 2014

JAMAICA - The Chairman of the Jamaica Broilers Group Robert Levy has been inducted into the Caribbean Poultry Association's Hall of Fame.

He was honoured by the association for his career-long contribution to the advancement of the poultry industry locally and regionally including a number of programmes to help poultry farmers to be profitable according to a report in the Jamaica Observer.

At a special Awards Ceremony at the Radisson Trinidad Hotel in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, Mr Levy (pictured) was described as a 'catalyst of change' within the poultry industry, having introduced a number of Jamaica Broilers Group-led initiatives which have resulted in greater efficiencies and yield for farmers, the Jamaica Observer said.

Among the initiatives is the technology-driven tunnel-ventilated house to replace the traditional chicken house, which is now in high demand across the Caribbean.
