Compliance, high productivity and surpassing standards set by Cobb USA, the world's leading company in the supply of Cobb Broiler Breeds are among the factors that led a local company in livestock industry to receive international recognition. The Top Company Award among Asian countries in the Parent Stock (PS) Fast Feathering Cob category was given to Ideal Hatchery Sendirian Berhad. The award is regarded by the company as an inspiration to expand its market both locally and internationally.
According to data collected by Cobb USA, Ideal Hatchery Sdn Bhd is leading in terms of high productivity and low mortality rate. Situated in Kampung Batang Mitus in the Tutong district, the 36 point 1-9 hectare farm produces an estimated 12 thousand hatching eggs daily and about 4 million hatching eggs annually. The company's Quality Assurance Officer said that the success was a result of the close cooperation and support from the government sector.
