Five hundred guests from Europe and the United States celebrated the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Mach Drubez Company in Litomysl, Czech Republic.
In that period the family-owned Mach company has become one of the biggest hatchery businesses in Europe, expanding capacity from 10 million to now 165 million broiler chicks/year with 1.5 million breeders in production.
The company represents 40% of the Czech market and 60% of the Slovak market. Sales to other EU countries and Ukraine have expanded considerably in recent years, with hatching eggs also sold to Russia, Iraq and Belorussia.
From the very beginning Jirí Mach has focused on the quality of day-old chicks and has worked with the Cobb breed since the first days.
“We have benefited from the Cobb500’s breeder feed saving, high hatchability and consistent chick quality,” says Jirí Mach. “We also greatly value the excellent relationship with Cobb Germany and the support we receive from Cobb’s European and worldwide technical teams.”
