Chinese Impressed by US Industry's Efficiency

26 October 2011

US - A group of Chinese customers were given an insight into US chicken production when they visited Tyson Foods and Pilgrims.

The visit was organised by Cobb-Vantress whose director of Asian sales and technical service, Charles Calvert, said their guests were impressed by the efficiency of the US industry from hatching egg production through to processing.

He said: "The Chinese industry is becoming more and more sophisticated, and is increasingly looking to the Cobb500 for its broiler growth, feed efficiency and meat yield to improve its overall profitability."

The visitors, who included Cobb franchise distributors Beijing Poultry Breeding Company, saw a Pilgrims' parent stock farm in Georgia, a hatchery, broiler production and the Tyson Foods' Albertville processing plant with an output of 1.8 million birds per week.
