The new hatchery is a proud moment for the Delmo family and goes onto exhibit the continued effort of the domestic poultry industry in investing in modern scientific technology.”

Its boiler production farms, processing plants and equipment are equipped with the latest evolving technologies which are on par with international standards and these are well reflected in the company’s certifications and accreditations such as GMP, HACCP, ISO 22000 amongst various others with all its products halal certified.
