Chi farms upgrades its GPS farm to evolve with global best standards

Chi Farms Ltd., a member of the TGI Group and a leading agribusiness company in Nigeria, has upgraded its Grandparent Stock (GPS) farm by modernizing its pen houses and hatcheries, in order to continuously evolve with global best standards.

The farm located in Sangobiyi village, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, was upgraded in collaboration with three international partners – Aviagen Group, Hendrix, and Petersime.

Ananda Raj, Business Head – Poultry Marketing and Sales, Chi Farms, spoke about the company’s innovation to improve its poultry operation. “Our hatching of Great Grandparent Stock eggs required the improvement of our hatchery equipment in environmentally controlled houses to hatch into GPS, PS eggs, broilers, and layer breeds. Our focus on improving the safety of the eggs and the hatching capabilities is tantamount to our commitment to quality production.”
