Experiences around the globe
The Philippine egg market has known a constant growth for many years now. This has offered many possibilities for companies, like Caraga Agricultural Business Corporate (CABCOR). Since its foundation back in 2011, this company has grown into one of the key players in the region of Butuan City and the surrounding province of the East side of Mindanao Island. To take the business one step further, CABCOR has installed the Forta GT, an exciting milestone as it is the first Forta in the Philippines that is up and running.
In 2009-2010, the Philippines struggled with prawn diseases. That is why HJR International, a company specialized in the prawn industry, decided to also commit to poultry farming. They founded the company CABCOR in 2011, which started with a population of 36,000 hens. The new commitment to the poultry industry paid off, and today the company has 13 units of layer houses and has conquered a strong market position in the Mindanao region. "If you look at our role in the total Philippine egg market on table eggs, it is very small. However, if you take a closer look per region, then we are the biggest egg producer in our region and use the most advanced egg grading equipment."
We knew that Moba has a strong global presence, and a great reputation for being reliable, accurate and precise. The same can be said about the Moba-employees, who truly care about and value their customers. So it was a very easy decision for us.
From manual hand grader to Forta
When the farm was established, the company used a manual hand grader. Due to the growing egg production, CABCOR moved to a new centralized GP station for its grading and packing activities. To improve production efficiency, CABCOR decided to invest in the Forta GT: "Selecting the right supplier for the equipment was a very important decision for the future of the company. We chose Moba as our partner based on our experience. We knew that Moba has a strong global presence, and a great reputation for being reliable, accurate and precise. The same can be said about the Moba-employees, who truly care about and value their customers. So it was a very easy decision for us."
The Forta GT with automatic packing lanes has helped CABCOR to reduce labor, improve the egg quality, and achieve excellent uniformity results on the grading process. "We want to thank Moba for all the provided support. Moba’s local service engineers came to visit our plant to ensure a successful installation and commissioning, and to train our operation team. With our new Forta, we have expanded our grading capabilities and we can provide our customers with fresh eggs for many years to come."
