Japfa Comfeed’s hatchery extension project in Bali launches with second installation of Royal Pas Reform Smart™ technologies

PT Japfa Comfeed Indonesia Tbk, one of the country’s leading integrated agri-food businesses, has further expanded production capacity at its hatchery in Tukadaya, Bali by installing a range of Smart™ technologies from Royal Pas Reform.

It monitors and adjusts the hatching process automatically – from the day of transfer, through to the hatching of the last chicks – eliminating any need for human intervention.

Japfa Comfeed launched its Tukadaya operation in 2014, when it installed 12 SmartSetPro™ setters, 12 SmartHatchPro™ hatchers and a full climate control system.
