As part of the USPOULTRY Foundation’s continued efforts to support the recruitment and training of the brightest students and to promote careers in the poultry and egg industry, domestically and globally, students and advisors from seven universities in Latin America were invited to the 2022 International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).
The students participated in the USPOULTRY Foundation International Student Program, enabling them to interact with companies that have global operations. They were also afforded the opportunity to explore the vast IPPE trade show floor to see the exciting technology used in today’s modern, sustainable poultry industry. In addition, the students participated in the Latin American Poultry Summit, sponsored by the IPE and the Asociación Latinoamericana de Avicultura (ALA), where they were recognized during the Summit lunch.
“ALA has assisted the USPOULTRY Foundation with the selection of the Latin American universities attending the USPOULTRY Foundation International Student Program for three years. We are pleased to be able to contribute to the Foundation’s efforts to bring the best and brightest Latin American students to explore opportunities in the global poultry industry,” said Juana Galvan, executive director, ALA.
“Several interviewing companies at IPPE have locations outside of the United States and are looking for students to fill positions in various countries. We are pleased to offer companies an opportunity to meet and talk with these international students,” remarked Greg Hinton, Rose Acre Farms, and USPOULTRY Foundation chairman.
