Great success at VIV MEA exhibition

NOVOGEN was present at VIV MEA in Abu Dhabi last November. This trade show attracted more than 6,600 visitors, especially from the poultry industry, coming from many neighbouring regions. The Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and Africa were particularly represented.

This first post-covid international professional trade show allowed NOVOGEN team (finally!) to meet many of our partners in the region without screens and organise meetings on the NOVOGEN stand. This great opportunity to meet also allowed to update our joint development plans with our partners after this unprecedented period that impacted on our sectors. New operators on new markets have also initiated many exchanges on our stand, which testifies to the energy of the sector and our attractiveness. Finally, a dinner in Abu Dhabi with the teams and partners was organized in a friendly atmosphere.

Following this fruitful week, we can only invite you to the next edition of the VIV MEA !

The R&D department, at the heart of NOVOGEN, exists to create and develop high-performance, competitive lines to satisfy all laying hen markets. To achieve that, the department needs to be innovative, knowing how to anticipate trends in the market – particularly when it comes to societal expectations – but also conduct the established breeding program with the utmost rigour.

Since 2008, NOVOGEN has been innovating intensively in R&D with the successive development of new selection systems such as breeding in collective cages followed by breeding on floor. The R&D team has also managed to improve selection processes constantly, and to introduce new technologies such as genomic selection. NOVOGEN has also managed to surround itself with world-renowned scientific partners such as INRAE and SYSAAF. The various research work carried out has helped speed up and consolidate the breeding program.

Looking beyond these innovations and developments, the quality of information collected from farms is decisive in maximising genetic progress. The work of selection is in fact a succession of tasks, each one as important as the last.  The qualities of the lines obtained depend on the breeding scheme, but also on the rigour and reliability of the work done throughout the whole process (identification, traceability, monitoring of farms, measurement and gathering of phenotypes, data verification and analysis, selection of the best individuals etc.). This work, carried out in partnership with farmers, allows more accurate genetic assessment of the birds as a result.

The R&D department is first and foremost a team effort, with complementary skills coming together to allow selection of the best possible lines. The team’s enthusiasm and dynamism allow us continually to develop new innovative projects that continue to bring real differentiation between NOVOGEN lines and others in the egg market.

Meeting with…
Justine MEHEUT

Export Sales & Logistic Assistant

What are your main tasks?

My main mission as an Export Assistant is to ensure that international customer orders are fulfilled correctly.
The Export Assistant receives the orders from customers, takes responsibility for organising the dispatch of chicks or eggs, right up to delivery. She also ensures customer follow-up and payment. This means that she organises logistics management and the administration part of the order.
She carries out registrations, follows up on customs documents and provides regulatory forms.This job requires good interpersonal skills, as well as a rigorous attitude.

Which departments/people do you particularly work with in-house? And externally?

We are the middleman between the area sales manager, local NOVOGEN representatives, the customer and the planning department.
Internally, we also work regularly with other departments like the QSE and the Accounts department. Companies outside NOVOGEN, such as transport carriers, freight forwarders and the ICC with whom the export assistant is in regular contact, are needed to fulfil her main task.

What does a typical day look like?

There not really any such thing as a typical day. The days fly by but they are all different. Each order has its own constraints, and sometimes it is difficult to anticipate new requests from our customers or their authorities, especially in the current context with the Covid 19 pandemic and avian flu.

 

What do you enjoy about your job?

Interaction with each of the company’s departments, whether they are in France or all over the world. That is what makes this job interesting, and I would also say that when you work with live animals, you never get bored wink !
