Quantum Foods owns the rights to import pedigree grandparent broiler stock of the Cobb 500 breed, which supplies next generation parent stock for its own requirements and non-exclusively for some customers in some other countries in Africa.

Day-old commercial broiler chicks are produced at the Group’s three hatcheries. The day-old chicks are transferred to commercial broiler farms, both company-owned and contract-grower farms.
