Cairo 3A Poultry is a fast-growing market pioneer in the Egyptian poultry industry, with a highly advanced and innovative vertical poultry integration model. In a major expansion project, Royal Pas Reform has been appointed to project manage and install an advanced single-stage hatchery based on Smart technologies. This will increase meat production capacity to 60,000 tons per year.
Located in the Bahareya Oasis region in Egypt’s Western Desert region, 250 km from Cairo, Cairo 3A Poultry is building a fully integrated poultry city, with farms spread over a vast 11,000 ha site. The company is exclusive supplier and distributor of Hubbard Grandparent stocks in Egypt and supplies day-old parent chicks across the country, as well as frozen, chilled and processed chicken meat.
The new hatchery will incorporate 30 x SmartSetPro setters, 30 SmartHatchPro hatchers and Royal Pas Reform’s SmartCenterPro hatchery management system. It will feature a range of advanced, integrated technologies. This will include a state-of-the-art Adaptive Metabolic Feedback (AMF) module, which creates incubation environments that are fine-tuned to the needs of the growing embryos; ESM (Energy Saving Module) to reduce energy consumption; and SmartWatch, to monitor and regulate the hatching process.
Royal Pas Reform will also equip the hatchery with a complete line of hatchery automation, including equipment for egg transport, automatic egg candling and egg transfer, chick counting and washing. The climate control system will include a heat exchanger system, air handling units and chick-room coolers/heaters. Royal Pas Reform will also provide the Cairo 3A Poultry hatchery team with full training.
Founded in 2017, Cairo 3A Poultry has full control over all stages necessary from grandparent’s stage all the way to slaughterhouse. The company currently has three grandparent farms, a grandparent hatchery with a yearly capacity of 8.85 million hatching eggs; 12 breeder farms, a hatchery with an annual capacity of 103 million hatching eggs; and 21 broiler farms with an annual meat production capacity of 60,000 tons.
