Whole poultry production by the Doux Group is for export only and marketed primarily under the Doux brand.

The Doux Group has developed poultry production know-how to an unprecedented level to meet stringent requirements in the technological, food safety, ethical and nutritional areas. This is why the company has a unique, integrated model that goes from the egg to the consumer’s plate and includes animal feed, hatchery, slaughter, processing and marketing. This coverage of the entire production chain enables the Group to guarantee optimal product quality and to ensure full traceability.

The Group has its own infrastructures: 27 reproduction farms, two hatcheries, two feed processing plants (to ensure natural poultry feed that is 100% plant-based with minerals and vitamins) and three slaughtering sites, along with 500 breeders, including 300 breeder partners, who work side-by-side with the Group.
