Wadi Group celebrate 30 year landmark anniversary as Ross customer

Wadi Group recently celebrated 30 years of collaboration with Ross, at its seventh Wadi Poultry Academy held from 25-29 September in Cairo, Egypt

The Wadi Poultry Academy was established in 2017 to implement regular, more formal training. The aim was to hold the Academy twice a year, the first being for internal Wadi personnel and the second for Wadi’s PS and broiler customers, in order to exchange knowledge regarding the latest technologies and techniques in modern production methods globally.

The Academy took place over four days at the Hyatt Regency in Cairo, with more than 220 guests in attendance. The event was split into two modules: broiler and breeder. The broiler module took place from 26-27 September and the breeder module commenced on 28 September and concluded on 29 September. Key topics related to broiler and breeder management were discussed during the four-day event including management, biosecurity, nutrition, diseases and ventilation. Tony Freiji, chairman of Wadi Group, gave the closing speech, and thanked all attendees who had contributed to the last 30 years of success of the Ross brand within the Egyptian market.

For over 30 years, Wadi Group has developed a firm and long standing relationship with the Ross brand. Throughout these years, Wadi has contributed to promoting and developing the Ross 308 breed within the Egyptian market. The Ross 308 broiler and breeder are performing exceptionally well and Wadi service teams, alongside Aviagen’s support teams have worked hard to ensure their customers recognised the genetic potential of the breed, and receive the best return on investment with their Ross flocks. Wadi believes in sharing knowledge, with their training sessions contributing greatly to the developments in the poultry sector in Egypt. Along with all their Wadi experts, six international specialists from the Aviagen team contributed and supported the Academy with their professional expertise. 

“Through the hard work, passion and resilience of their innovative and highly skilled team members, we will continue to drive the industry forward in Egypt to ensure supply of the healthiest and most affordable source of protein to our growing population. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Aviagen for years to come,” commented Puzant Dakessian, CEO, Wadi Poultry. “Aviagen is honored to have united with Wadi for the last 30 years to ensure the success of the Ross brand in the market. Their hard work and dedication to the Ross 308 breed is evident and we would like to thank them for their loyalty to Aviagen. We look forward to witnessing the further growth and success of Wadi and the Ross brand in the Future,” added Bulent Tanyildizi, international commercial manager, Ross, MEA.
