Research and Development (R&D)
Research & Development (R&D) is a continuous improvement process to enrich quality of the output. A’Saffa firmly believes in this process and devotes significant effort towards R&D initiatives.
A’Saffa’s R&D initiatives are driven by highly qualified and experienced poultry experts including nutritionists and veterinarians. These initiatives over time have helped establish Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) which are strictly followed at all A’Saffa facilities and farms.
The R&D team focuses on the areas of environment, birds’ diet, disease management, the overall health and development of the birds. The R&D team is always looking at bringing efficiency through effective water sanitation, temperature, ventilation, lighting and litter / floor management. Since feed and nutrition are important factors, the team constantly aims at devising feed formulation for a healthy feed conversion rate (FCR). The team also works to identify newer ingredients using natural agro based products. Disease management is another area where the team pays attention to prevent outbreaks. By closely monitoring and reviewing bird performance, the team helps identify vulnerabilities and define programs to control them. The R&D team assures the farmers quality output and support through innovative and practical solutions based on scientific poultry management. Through activities by its central monitoring unit that include field trips, 180 trials everyday and 24 x 7 x 365 support services.
A’Saffa has its own pharma division situated in Thumrait. The pharma division develops and takes care of complete formulation for poultry health care.
