Nippon Chunky celebrates 50 years of success with Aviagen's Ross
In November last year, Nippon Chunky, the exclusive Ross® distributor in Japan, held a celebration for 50 years of success with its strong promotion and support of the broiler breeder, as well as its dedication to providing the best after-sales service for a growing customer base in the local market.
The anniversary was held at the ANA Crowne Plaza, with over 150 guests in attendance, together with the senior Aviagen® Asian regional management team. The purpose of the gathering was for Aviagen to honor the successful long-term relationship with Nippon Chunky and the distributor's business achievements in Japan.
The event started with an opening address from Nippon Chunky president, Tadashi Yoshida. He expressed his appreciation to Aviagen for its genetic innovation and supporting Nippon Chunky in its growth.
"The 50th anniversary is just a milestone for us toward a bright future and it is necessary as the top leader in the market to commit to future growth more and more as our duty and responsibility," Yoshida said.
"We seriously desire (Aviagen's) partnership and friendship with Nippon Chunky for next century as well."
David Butler, the technical service director of Ross Breeders Ltd who has been visiting Nippon Chunky for over two decades, was at the event. His influence was cited to have benefit both Nippon Chunky and the Japanese broiler industry at large. Furthermore, Butler is credited with the improvement of the management of broiler breeding stock in the market.
Bob Dobbie, Aviagen's president of international business, acknowledged the significant milestone and achievements of Nippon Chunky.
"It would be impossible to mention the names of all the individuals involved in this 50-year relationship, so let's just remember and thank everyone who has contributed to the success and longevity of Nippon Chunky," Dobbie said.
