At HatchTech, we create the ideal conditions for incubation, based on scientific research. Providing superior chick quality is part of our DNA, and our knowledge forms the basis of all our solutions.
The HatchTech Research Team strives to share its findings with industry peers. Our researchers often attend poultry seminars and conferences to present research and to learn from other specialists. We publish our results in technical and scientific journals. The knowledge of the HatchTech Research Team can be used to improve hatchability, chick quality, and subsequent performance.
