In a recent case study titled "Optimization of Environmental Monitoring Solutions in Poultry Hatcheries for Sustainable Practices," Hygiena® and Aviagen® have joined forces to set new standards in the poultry sector. This collaboration underscores the commitment of both organizations to pioneer sustainable and innovative solutions in poultry and hatchery hygiene.

About Aviagen

Aviagen stands as a global authority in poultry genetics, renowned for its leading-edge technology in research and development and its forward-thinking hygiene and animal welfare concepts. 

Facing the challenge of upholding unparalleled health and biosecurity standards across its extensive network of 500 broiler farms and 11 hatcheries, Aviagen embarked on a mission.
