Worldwide sales by Food Chain Innovation of the energy-efficient lining material Valéron AVA have reached a company landmark, topping 300,000 square meters coming off the production line in Bristol, UK.

The material, used to conserve energy in poultry housing in cool climates and to protect against heat in hot countries, is now being used in more than nine countries on four continents. Countries such as Kenya and South Africa are the latest to place substantial orders after carrying out their own trials assessing the benefits and durability of this lining.
