New Smart hatchery for Russia's Belgrankorm company

In its most recent development, Belgorod Region’s Belgankorm Company has joined forces with Pas Reform to open the fourth hatchery in its diverse agribusiness portfolio.

The new hatchery, located at v.Zavidovka in Belgorod region, was designed and installed by the Dutch hatchery technology company to produce 48mln day old chicks per annum in 36 SmartSet™ 77 setters and 24 SmartHatch™ hatchers. The installation also includes a complete line of hatchery automation systems: egg candling, egg transfer equipment, chick handling equipment and hatchery climate control.

Belgrankorm Company was founded in 1998, initially as a feed mill factory. Over the next decade, the Company expanded and diversified - with a strong focus on modern equipment and innovative technologies. Belgrankorm’s integrated poultry operations today comprise two GPS-hatcheries, 11 broiler growing farms, three slaughter houses – and now four hatcheries, all overseen by a specialised poultry management department.

A closed production cycle delivers high quality products for the domestic market, marketed under the “Yasnye Zori” and “Selskie traditsii” brands.
