On Dec. 23, Aviagen® India Sales and Customer Service team members took the opportunity to engage with customers and industry colleagues at the annual Poultry Federation of India (PFI) meeting, which is considered the voice of the Indian poultry industry. Addressing current hot topics important for Indian poultry producers, the meeting saw various speakers, including two Aviagen customers: Mr. Bahadur Ali from IB Group and Mr. Suresh Chitturi of Srinivasa Farms.
