According to a company press release, Kyrgyz Broiler has chosen Cobb-Vantress’ Cobb500 broiler to be the first broiler parents to be imported into the country of Kyrgyzstan.

Currently, Kyrgyzstan is about 15-20% self-sufficient in poultry meat production, with the rest of the chicken meat being imported from neighboring countries Ukraine and Kazakhstan. With its latest investment in the Cobb500 broiler, Kyrgyz Broiler will continue its domestic growth. In recent years, the government has supported the company in becoming Kyrgyzstan’s first commercial company to start producing local chicken meat and is encouraging the company to expand.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to expand and bring quality broiler meat to a new and growing market. We’re happy to be doing business with Kyrgyz Broiler, and we’re committed to providing quality products across the globe,” said Abdullah Vahab, business manager for Cobb Europe.

Based in Kyrgyzstan’s capital city of Bishkek, Kyrgyz Broiler doesn't sell any hatching eggs or day-old chicks to the market. It supplies fresh chicken meat to the market, whole chickens, and chicken parts such as breasts and wings to the market.
