In 2011, our first pipettes hit the lab. The goal was clear: to stop the unnecessary killing of day old male chicks.

The first samples were carefully taken by hand. It took some years to get there, but in 2016, it worked: a single drop of the egg’s fluid was enough to see whether it held a boy or a girl. One done, only 13 billion to go.

As you can imagine, we needed a machine.

The first steps into industrialization were taken and a huge impact on animal welfare was lurking. In 2020, our first machine was up and running. What a beauty.

Since we started out in 2011, we have been developing an automated process to determine the sex of a chick while still inside the egg. We aim to prevent the hatching and then culling of billions of male chicks worldwide just because they do not lay eggs. In 2020, we installed the first version of our machine in a hatchery. Since then, we have developed the technology further, and a new, improved machine began operating in 2022.

We can proudly report that during the last few months alone, we have prevented hundred thousands day-old male chicks from being killed. Our mission is to end the culling of male chicks completely.

Our machine is only the initial step on our journey, our first pioneering innovation. We are determined to develop our business further and create many more innovative ideas. When it comes to animal welfare and climate change, all sorts of challenges exist and cry out for imaginative ideas and unconventional solutions. These are precisely the challenges that drive us forward.

In our company, we combine analytical insight with a no-nonsense approach. We don’t get caught up in endless discussions. And we don’t stare at the screen for hours on end. We look at the hatcheries from the inside. Because our solutions have to work for them if what we do is to succeed.
