ZAMBIA - The two breeding companies appear to be developing closer contacts.

Representatives from Cobb and Hendrix Genetics met at the 82nd Agriculture and Commerce Show at Lusaka, Zambia, recently.

Paul van de Ven (Hendrix Genetics area manager for Africa), Richard Keeley (managing director of Hybrid Poultry) and Antony Taylor (Cobb Europe area manager) met at the Hybrid Poultry stand.

"We shall be cooperating in providing service for Cobb and ISA customers and exploring new markets for each other's products," said Mr van de Ven. "We both have a good market share in Africa."

Hybrid Poultry, based in Lusaka, is an important Cobb customer, selling both ISA layers and Cobb broiler chicks domestically and in the region.
