The biennial event —organized by the Association of Poultry Veterinarians (AMEVEA)— has become a must for the sector. The 2023 edition brought together poultry industry researchers, specialists, and suppliers, both from Chile and abroad.

From November 29 to December 1, the 17th International Seminar on Poultry Diseases and Production was held at a hotel in the Chilean coastal city of Viña del Mar. The event offered a review of the latest scientific and technological advances in health, food safety, feeding, and animal welfare in production and laying birds. It also provided a space to hear world-renowned experts in these areas.

ChileCarne was represented by Matías Andrade, head of Innovation and Development Projects, and Simón Araya, head of Strategic Projects. Their presence underlines the industry’s commitment to innovation and growth in the Chilean poultry sector.

Under the coordination of Héctor Hidalgo, the seminar captured the interest of poultry-related professionals and producers from both Chile and neighboring countries such as Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, and Brazil. This is due to the international reputation of the seminar and the high-level of the speakers.

This year’s program included topics such as public health improvement, diet, experimental test design, food safety risk factors, animal welfare, gut health, and various poultry diseases.

The seminar did not only provide valuable knowledge but also a unique opportunity for experience sharing and networking between different actors, which helps strengthening the industry at the regional level.
