NOVOGEN at Pamed 2019
The economic environment in 2017 and early 2018 was difficult for Tunisian egg farmers, but two years after the return of quotas, prices have become profitable again in the past few months. The same can be said for hatcheries, with better chick prices (1.7/1.8DT) and improved capacity use, making 2019 a favourable period.
Our distributor Sotavi, like its colleagues, is benefitting from these fluctuations to the growth market and has renewed its faith in NOVOGEN by choosing its 2019 and 2020 NOVOgen White parent stock.
The recent loss of Ben Ayed, the President and Founder of the Poulina Group, was a major topic of conversation at Pamed 2019. Poultry farming, and more broadly the Tunisian economy, has truly lost one of its leading lights.
A highlight of Pamed 2019 was the appointment of Dr Mongi Askri as President of Sotavi. His predecessor, Tarek Chaouch, became the new Managing Director of GIPAC. The whole NOVOGEN team wishes them good luck in their new respective roles.
