UK - Hubbard SAS and Joice and Hill Poultry Ltd have made an agreement that will give Hubbard the exclusive use of the Joice and Hill hatchery at Fulletby, Lincolnshire, which will hatch eggs from the Hubbard UK grand parent farms. This arrangement is part of Hubbard’s plan for further expansion into the UK market.

Hubbard is a world leader in the development and marketing of improved broiler breeding stock. Hubbard specializes in state-of-the-art methods (both traditional and new technologies) of improving the breeding of their pure lines for broilers, in order to respond to current and future needs of the industry.

Fulletby hatchery was completely refurbished and equipped with the latest Chickmaster equipment two years ago.

‘We are delighted with this opportunity to develop our sales in the UK and are impressed by the Joice and Hill facilities and management’, said UK sales executive, Jim Hunnable, ‘ the market is ready for the Hubbard Flex with very positive animal welfare traits and this also demonstrates our commitment to the British market’.

Joice and Hill will produce all their Bovans Goldline and Babcock layer chicks at their Eye, Peterborough hatchery which has recently been acquired from ISA.

‘Joice and Hill now has the capacity to supply the largest farms in the UK and our farming base has expanded so that we can meet the demand for the growing demand for the profitable Bovans Goldline and Babcock brands throughout the UK;’ said Robert Haynes, CEO of Joice and Hill, ‘it’s good to team up with Jim Hunnable again and we look forward to helping another successful breed in a different market to our own’.
