La Prensa.hn reports: "Freddy Madrigal, director of Agriculture for Cargill Central America commented that the plant has the most advanced technology for poultry breeding and production. He said that the plant has the capacity to produce between 800,000 and one million chicks per week. They are currently using 45 workers."
The multinational has confirmed its investment in Nicaragua, starting with the construction of a $ 3.5 million factory to increase its production to 11 million pounds of chicken.
In the first six months of the year the production of poultry meat amounted to 71.8 million kilos, about 10.4 million more than in the same period in 2013.
Nicaraguan poultry farmers estimate that 2015 will close with a total production of 290 million pounds of meat and 600 million eggs.
Increased competition and rising production costs are causing firms in the sector to revive their production processes with new plants, equipment and electrical systems.
