On October 10, the Dutch ambassador Margriet Leemhuis hosted a business lunch where César Quesada Macías, President of the Mexican Poultry Producers Association (UNA), his staff, AgriMex Holanda representatives (MPS Aqua and Marel) and local managers of relevant Dutch companies established in Mexico attended as guests of honor.

The meeting allowed for an introductory overview of the Poultry industry in Mexico, past and present collaboration between UNA and our consortium, the challenges open for the poultry sector in the years to come and the opportunities this means for a reinforced bilateral collaboration.

Scientific roundtable
Moreover, based on last years’ successful experiences, UNA directives expressed interest in having a Dutch experts participate in the scientific roundtable on Animal Welfare that is to take place on occasion of the upcoming 52 UNA Congress –a paramount gathering of the main stakeholders in the Mexican poultry business- which is to take place Nov 23-25, 2016 at the coastal resort of Huatulco, Oaxaca. Sure enough, Agrimex Holanda already signed-in both as sponsor of the event and as a reliable supplier of Dutch expertise.
