First Romanian Chicken Producer Receives GLOBALG.A.P. Certificate

In June 2018, major chicken producer Transavia Farms became the first chicken producer to achieve GLOBALG.A.P. certification in Romania. The certification ensures the company’s safe and sustainable production of high-quality products. Transavia is one of the most reputable Romanian family businesses with over 27 years of experience in the market and now has over 2,000 employees at 4 vegetable farms, 28 breeding farms, 2 hatcheries, one mixed fodder factory, 3 slaughterhouses, and a meat processing plant.

Superior quality of products
At the locations spread across 8 Romanian counties (Alba, Cluj, Sibiu, Brasov, Timis, Mures, Harghita, and Caras Severin), 70,000 tons of chicken meat are produced annually. Thanks to the superior quality of its products, Transavia was awarded the title “Supplier of the Royal House of Romania” in 2006. The company’s products are also provided in most local retail chains under the “Fragedo” and “Papane” brands. More than 25% of the company’s annual production is exported to several EU countries, including the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Hungary, Greece, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, and Croatia.

Produced in compliance with the highest international food safety norms and standards
“Food safety and the quality of our consumers’ lives are at the heart of our company’s principles. All of the products we supply, nationally and internationally, are produced in compliance with the latest version of the highest international food safety norms and standards, under close supervision of the sanitary and veterinary authorities. The company has so far implemented and certified the following standards: GLOBALG.A.P IFA Poultry, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, BRC Food v7, and Halal”, confirms Ioan Popa, Chairman of Transavia Group.

“Obtaining GLOBALG.A.P. certification for broilers represents a new recognition of the work that we have been doing for over 27 years in line with the latest state-of-the-art standards and technologies, with the role of assuring consumers of our seriousness and involvement in the entire integrated production chain,” elaborates Popa.

The first fully integrated producer of broilers in Romania
In addition to the core parts of the GLOBALG.A.P. Standard applicable to all farming operations related to broiler production, the livestock module covers specific areas including feed and feed production, breeding and hatching, and the actual broiler farms. Transavia is the first fully integrated producer of broilers in Romania that has acquired GLOBALG.A.P. certification, fulfilling all the requirements imposed by the standard. 
