A multi-generational visit from Young Kong Farms

The Huang family, founders of Young Kong Farms, visited the Ploufragan head office in France.

The company is a valued partner of Hendrix Genetics, based in Taiwan. This was a very special visit as three generations were present for this visit: the founder Mr. Kun Fu Huang, his son, and current manager of the business, Mr. Levin Huang, as well as their wives and children. Mr. Huang started the business 60 years ago and has had many years of success distributing Babcock, Shaver, Dekalb, and Hisex brands. Young Kong Farms is also quite active in day-old broilers, swine, as well as activities in feed mills in Vietnam.

Together with Maïlys Faure, Geneticist, Frédérick Rémy, Production Manager, and Benoît Pelé, Area Director Asia, the family received a tour of our facilities, including some of the farms nearby.

After the tours, we presented a gift to the group in recognition of our long history together: a bronze statue of a chicken for Mr. Kun Fu Huang and a colored pottery piece for Mr. Levin Huang.

We enjoyed this special time together with the Huang family and we thank them for their many years of friendship and cooperation.
