First Petersime Hatchery in Mauritania

01 April 2015

MAURITANIA - The Ouakkaha group recently inaugurated one of the first hatcheries in Mauritania with all incubators and hatchery equipment supplied by Petersime distributor, Société Cidape.

The new broiler hatchery is located east of the capital, Nouakchott.

For many years, the Ouakkaha group has exported broiler chicks to Mauritania. With this new investment, they can not only supply Mauritania with local chicks but also neighbouring Mali. The hatchery will produce about 135,000 chicks per week.

El Hafid Ouakkaha, Director of the Ouakkaha group, explained: “We are extremely satisfied with the Petersime machines we have in our hatcheries in Morocco. Because achieving the best quality is very important for us, we decided once more to use Petersime equipment for our newest hatchery in Mauritania.”

In 2013, the company exported over 10 million hatching eggs to multiple countries in Africa, among which Senegal, Ivory Coast, Mali and Mauritania. The group produces about one million standard chicks and 120,000 free-range chicks and it owns a feed mill.
