The centennial year celebrations of Cobb-Vantress continued during the 24th biennial Central America & Caribbean Poultry Congress in Antigua, Guatemala. Along with other poultry companies, Cobb welcomed nearly 1,200 participants from all over the region for the three-day congress. Cobb unveiled a one-of-a-kind booth and was a major sponsor for the event.

Trevor Gies, Cobb senior marketing manager for North America, looked to the future. “As we begin to wrap up our centennial year, we wanted to show our customers in Central America that we are investing and preparing for tomorrow’s needs,” he said.

“Central America is an important market for our business, and we see the value in investing in events like this that allow us to interact with our customers as well as show our support of the region’s poultry industry.”


Chance Bryant, Cobb associate director of technical services, spoke about proper management techniques and shared valuable insights with attendees. “It’s always a great opportunity when we’re able to share our expertise on particular topics and show our commitment to technical service.”

“Being able to celebrate our 100th anniversary with all of our customers in Central America was very meaningful,” said Todd Wilson, Cobb general manager for North America. “This was an opportunity for Cobb to show our investment, not just in our research or product but in our support for the industry and our customers. We have built long-standing relationships with our customers, and it is because of them we’re able to have the success we do.”
