Hubbard celebrates 100-year commitment to poultry breeding

In 1921, Ira Hubbard officially created the Hubbard Farms company in Walpole, New Hampshire, USA. This was the very beginning of what finally became one of the leading primary broiler breeding companies in the world.

International expansion started in the 1960’s in Europe and then towards the rest of the world. At that time, R&D became the core business, while continuously listening to market trends, customer needs and consumer demands. 

The start of the new century highlighted a turning point, especially in North America and Europe for higher welfare values, better animal health and meat quality. Through its long experience and large Hubbard Premium portfolio, Hubbard has been able to continue to be the undisputed preferred supplier in this growing market segment.

Since 2018, becoming an independent member of the world leading Aviagen Group, a new era has begun. Substantial additional investments in the Hubbard Premium and Conventional R&D programs in France and the USA, as well as in production facilities in France, USA, Brazil, and Poland have further strengthened Hubbard’s future.

With Hubbard Efficiency Plus breeder females or the well-known Hubbard Premium range, Hubbard’s genetic programs remain designed and dedicated to providing efficient, healthy, high-quality and tasty chicken meat for the world’s growing population.

Initially, Hubbard planned to celebrate this important event with its customers and business partners at industry meetings and trade shows, but due to the still ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have unfortunately had to postpone until 2022.
