Atlantic Poultry Inc. (API) of Port Williams has purchased the operating assets of Clark’s Chick Hatchery (CCH) Atlantic Provinces from Nutreco Canada Inc.

API is a recognized leader within the poultry industry in the region. With more than 70 years of experience, API’s operations include a broiler hatching egg production, a broiler chick hatchery, commercial table egg production, a modern egg grading facility, a commercial feed milling operation, and is a co-owner of Country Ribbon Inc., a poultry producer and processor located in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

“The acquisition of the Clark’s Chick Hatchery operations is a perfect fit to continue API’s growth in this sector of the poultry industry, and is in line with our business strategy set four years ago”, CEO Ian Blenkharn said July 19.

“The combination of these two historic Atlantic Canadian operations will not only provide new opportunities but will also strengthen the regional poultry industry.”

Blenkharn also noted that the transaction has provided API with “the opportunity to establish an ongoing relationship with Nutreco regarding poultry feed manufacturing and distribution.”

Nutreco is a global leader in animal nutrition and fish feed. It employs approximately 10,000 people in 30 countries with sales in over 80 countries.
