NETHERLANDS - During VIV Europe, the Dutch poultry industry launched a new initiative to better serve the global poultry industry.

Nearly all major international operating companies and institutes in the Dutch poultry industry joined forces participating in Dutch Poultry Centre. This network organisation will strengthen the reputation of the Dutch poultry servicing industry all over the world.
