La Cabaña Avicola, a family company based in the municipality of San Bautista, near Montevideo in Uruguay, has been a pioneer in introducing, promoting and democratizing the consumption of chicken meat in what is predominantly “cattle” country, with a high red-meat consumption profile.
La Cabaña chose Royal Pas Reform’s SmartPro technologies for its first-ever owned hatchery. While the company already has a full production chain in place, the decision to invest in a new hatchery was to be sure of having top quality, day-old chicks for its broiler farms.
The hatchery is equipped with SmartPro technology and Royal Pas Reform’s customized climate control system. The hatchery will initially produce one-million chicks per year, rising to two million in phase two of the project.
Gabriela Baldi, managing director of La Cabaña, says: “This is a very important step for our company and will sustain our aiming of producing top-quality chicken meat for Uruguayan consumers. We have chosen Royal Pas Reform because of both its high-quality equipment and service support, which is considered to be the best amongst its industry competitors.
“We at Royal Pas Reform are very happy with this project,” says Gonzalo Begino, agent for Argentina and Uruguay, “The installation went smoothly, despite the pandemic restrictions at the time. We now are pleased to say ‘welcome to the family’ to La Cabaña.”
