America is in the grips of an avian influenza (AI) epidemic—the worst in U.S. history. The outbreak has forced poultry farmers to euthanize millions of turkeys and chickens, with new cases emerging daily. Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin have declared states of emergency, while teams of scientists scramble to better understand precisely how this “H5” virus is spreading.
At Batory Foods, we are working tirelessly to mitigate the impact of the epidemic, which has hit suppliers across the U.S., including our own egg supplier. We’re confident that our national scale, service excellence and far-ranging portfolio offer several advantages—not least the expertise to problem solve with customers.
In our Market Update, we include more information on this topic and details about how Batory is addressing it.
