HatchTech and REWE Group jointly founded SELEGGT (2017) and respeggt (2019), as part of their shared commitment to setting new ethical standards in the poultry industry. Today, seven gender identification machines are installed and operational, allowing to house around 20 million laying hens “Free of Chick Culling”. This success is a result of HatchTech’s expertise in research and technology, and the commercial reach of REWE Group.
Tjitze Meter, Founder and CEO, HatchTech Group: “Our collaboration with REWE Group has been vital in establishing SELEGGT and respeggt, particularly in the German market. Together, we completed the start-up phase for these ventures, and have put a strong technology foundation in place. With a continuous strong focus on research and development, we are ready to further develop our offerings. This next stage will allow us to bring SELEGGT and respeggt eggs to a global audience.”
