Carrying Out Active Operations to Cater to Growing Demand
Keeping pace with the growing demand for broiler chicken in India, IB Group runs its commercial broiler operations round the clock throughout the year. Adopting a two-pronged strategy to maximize production, the company runs its own operations as well as delegates to external farmers on contract basis. With the total broiler capacity of 15 million, the in-house farms are modern with environment controlled houses, equipped automated systems for supplying feed and water to the chicks. The chicks are fed with IB Group’s own nutritious ABIS feed, and their health is monitored by veterinary experts. Also IB Group is associated with more than 8,000 poultry farms spread across 20 states in India. 120 branches of IB Group support and manage these contract farms.
Strategically Integrating Our Broiler Operations With External Farmers to Maximize Capacity
IB Group runs several commercial broiler farms on its own. The broilers are raised in clean and hygienic environment controlled houses, equipped with automated systems for supplying feed and water to the birds. Pure water and nutritious ABIS feed are given to the birds for imparting good health and lower disease risk. For keeping them disease free, the broiler chicks are vaccinated and their health status is frequently monitored by veterinary experts.
Allowing vertical integration in its breeding operations, IB Group also delegates the breeding operations to external farmers on contract basis. Under the contract program, IB Group provides the parent birds to the contract farmers retaining the ownership, entrusting the farmers with the responsibility of raising the birds under strict guidelines. As part of the input supply policy, IB Group provides the farmers with quality chicks, poultry feed, vaccines, technical services and broiler marketing assistance.
IB Group also runs a socio-economic initiative based contract farming scheme–Parivartan. Under which, the company partners with existing broiler farmers and upgrades their farming infrastructure by providing environment controlled houses and automated machinery at 40% subsidy. This in turn enables the farmers to raise quality broilers while maximizing their earnings.
