Explore our program for Salmonella management in poultry production

Salmonella is one of the most important pathogens affecting food safety in poultry. Although most birds are asymptomatic, some Salmonella spp. and high levels of contamination can affect a bird’s performance. Salmonella control measures require a strict program across the production chain. Contamination can happen at each step of the production cycle, from the breeder farm to the hatchery and all along with the broilers’ and layers’ life. Preventive actions at each point of poultry meat and egg production are necessary.
