POLAND - Aviagen EPI was delighted to welcome representatives from all sectors of Poland’s poultry industry to a three-day technical seminar in the spa town of Dzwirzyno.

The event featured a mixture of technical advice and market knowledge and was very well received by customers. Dariusz Kulik, Aviagen EPI’s Sales Manager for Poland, chaired the seminar, welcoming the audience and introducing each speaker. First up was Patrick Claeys, Aviagen EPI’s General Manager, who discussed Aviagen’s European and global activities, as well as providing information on market trends in the region.

Jim McAdam, Aviagen’s UK Breeding Programme Director, then gave an overview of Aviagen’s unrivalled R & D programme and its future direction. Aviagen EPI’s Technical Director, Otto van Tuijl, shared valuable advice on Ross 308 PS and broiler nutrition, whilst Technical Service Managers Frank van Merle and Zbigniew Przybylski highlighted male selection and embryo protection.

Commenting on the attendance, Dariusz Kulik said, “Events such as these are fantastic opportunities to say thank you to all our friends and customers in Poland. Attendance was superb; it was great to welcome so many people here and to hear the comments of appreciation we have received.

This was our first seminar in Poland for three years and it goes to show the passion for the industry that there is here. Poland has the chance to become a major player in the European poultry market and as a primary breeder it is our job to support our customers as they realise that vision.”

Patrick Claeys added, “Poland is one of Aviagen EPI’s key markets and the recent announcement of a GP project with BroMargo in Poland highlights our commitment to the market. This seminar is an important part of our strategy in providing our customers with the most up-to-date and relevant information, as well as providing the opportunity to gain invaluable feedback as to how we can work even closer together to grow the Polish market even further.”

Tomasz Sztuder, the owner of one of the biggest hatcheries in Poland, said, “The seminar was a most worthwhile and enjoyable event. The opportunity to talk with so many of Aviagen’s senior people, to hear first-hand about their R&D programme and to gain more knowledge to help further improve Ross performance was invaluable. The event and attendance showed the commitment of all concerned to the Polish poultry industry.”

A varied social programme, including a bowling and billiard tournament and a barbecue with traditional Polish music and an evening party, provided an ideal background for building relationships and meeting colleagues throughout the industry.
