Aviagen announces Aviagen Turkeys

The Aviagen Group Turkey Breeding companies, Nicholas Turkey Breeding Farms (Nicholas) and British United Turkeys (BUT) have been operating as separate companies since the acquisition of BUT in September 2005, however, the approach is now changing.

From 16 April, both companies will operate as one company - Aviagen Turkeys. According to the company, this will eliminate duplication of efforts and allow more resources to be focused on supporting customers. "As Aviagen Turkeys we have full pedigree breeding programmes in both the USA and Europe, providing a more secure, global supply source, plus the opportunity to maximise product improvement and new product development," says the company in a press release. "Innovation is key for the continual development of the industry and we feel this move will allow us to increase both our investment in products and our customer service."
The two operations will be Aviagen Turkeys, Inc., based in Lewisburg, West Virginia, and Aviagen Turkeys Ltd., based near Chester, UK.
Additionally, Aviagen Turkeys will support the BUT and Nicholas brands for all customers in Europe. Aviagen Turkeys Inc. will support all customers outside Europe, including North America, South America, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and Asia.
