The ceremony was attended by leaders of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Tay Ninh Province and neighboring provinces; representatives from the embassies of Belgium, the Netherlands and Indonesia in Vietnam; the Vietnam Digital Agriculture Association; the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham), and nearly 500 customers who are agents and large-scale livestock farmers.
The factory, which has received a total investment of VND200 billion, covers an area of 15,000 square metres. The designed capacity is over 19 million chicks per year in the first stage, and will expand to 38.4 million chicks per year in the second stage.
The Bel Ga high-tech poultry incubation factory is part of the supply chain for clean, sustainable and export-oriented agricultural products of Bel Ga Company and its partners in the districts of Tan Chau and Trang Bang in Tay Ninh Province. The supply chain includes two brood chicken farms with a capacity of 25 million eggs per year and 250 safe broiler farms with a capacity of 25 million broilers per year. In addition, there will be a closed-chain complex for producing and processing high quality agricultural products. The total investment required for these projects is expected to be about VND3,325 billion (US$141.5 million).
According to Kris Van Daele, General Director of Bel Ga Vietnam and Cambodia, Bel Ga Tay Ninh’s one-day chicks for meat and for eggs will ensure the highest international standards of Global GAP, through the management and control of biosafety in livestock production, monitoring the quality of hatching eggs, and the maintenance of low stocking densities in broiler farms. All are aimed at optimising day-old chick production, while ensuring traceability in the entire production chain.
