QAF Farms Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of QAF Brunei, began
its operations in June 2000. Its facilities comprise of a hatchery
and broiler farm. The hatchery is located in Kampung Sungai Birau,
Tutong, on 2 acres of hilly sites. There are 18 farmhouses, each
having the capacity to hold 30,000 birds. All the farmhouses operate
a closed-house system whereby the environment is controlled by
equipment such as cooling pads, extraction fans and automated
drinking/feeding systems. Hi-tech bio-security systems are also
installed to prevent threats like bacterial contamination.
hatchery produces day old chicks (DOC) for transfer to the farmhouses
after a hatching period of 21 days. DOC produced by the hatchery
is meant for QAF Farm’s use only. Upon receipt of the DOC,
the farm keeps the broiler chickens until they reach the harvesting
age (between 40-42 days with average body weight of 19kg). With
our bio-security systems in place, combined with feeding and vaccination
programmes, the broiler chickens sent to the abattoir for processing
are guaranteed to be healthy and disease free.
Farms is able to produce 180,000 quality, disease-free broiler
chickens per month at the lowest cost, due to our effective closed-house
and farm management systems. This translates into lower costs
for our customers and makes our finished products very competitive
for both the domestic and export market.
a large domestic market share and ability to export globally –
especially to Muslim countries – QAF Farms is quickly establishing
itself as a world-class producer of poultry products.
