The Saudi Grand Parent Company is to become the franchise distributor for Cobb broiler breeders in the Arab Gulf area known as the GCC countries, including Yemen.

The distribution agreement was signed by Pelayo Casanovas, sales and technical director of Cobb Europe; Mohammed Chail, sales and business development manager of Cobb; and Ibrahim Al Thonayan, who heads the Saudi Grand Parent Co. The new alliance will be known as Cobb Saudi Arabia.

Its new complex will become one of the largest for Cobb grandparents, with a planned capacity of more than five million female breeders per year. This project will be based near the Al Jouf area for bio-security reasons.
