Construction of Broiler Production Facilities Equipped with Modern and Fully Automated Systems


A poultry farm business in Cyprus has used EAFRD co-financing as part of its investment programme for the construction of three new and fully automated poultry meat production facilities.


The old facilities which were used for broiler production were not profitable, had high maintenance costs and were lacking modern equipment and automated systems. In 2005 the company owner decided to apply for support for the construction of new modern units, which would be more efficient and would have no negative environmental impact.


The project objective was the increased productivity and improvement of the poultry meat quality.

Results & Benefits
