Super Pollo: Chile

With its Super Pollo brand, Agrosuper dominates the poultry meat market in Chile. In 2006, their San Vicente processing plant completely burnt down. Truly this was a disaster for the company. But it offered them the chance to completely redesign their facility as well. The result is a state of the art plant, which is running again since 2007. Ad Bal and María de los Angeles of World Poultry and Avicultura Profesional Magazine, recently toured Chile and paid a visit to the San Vicente facility. Join them on their plant tour through this photo gallery. A background article on this plant visit is published in the nr. 2 / 2009 edition of Poultry Processing Magazine.
