Avi­a­gen to buy Hub­bard Breed­ers

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

In­ter­na­tional ge­net­ics firm Avi­a­gen is set to ac­quire Hub­bard Breed­ers, the broiler breed­ing di­vi­sion of Group Gri­maud, in an agree­ment that will be con­cluded later this year.

While Hub­bard Breed­ers will op­er­ate as a wholly-owned sub­sidy of Avi­a­gen Group, the two en­ti­ties will re­tain sep­a­rate breed­ing pro­grammes and com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties, although a com­pany state­ment said they would share ‘best prac­tices, ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge’.

“Hub­bard’s di­ver­sity of ge­netic prod­ucts and in-depth ex­per­tise in the dif­fer­ent seg­ments of the broiler breed­ing mar­ket will greatly con­trib­ute to Avi­a­gen’s ex­pand­ing prod­uct line of­fer­ings,” said Avi­a­gen chief ex­ec­u­tive Jan Hen­rik­sen, who

will ul­ti­mately over­see the busi­ness.¡
