Overview of ProTen
ProTen is the leading broiler chicken farm developer and operator in Australia. ProTen owns and operates a total of 482 poultry sheds across 36 broiler farms strategically located in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
ProTen's existing Farms have the capacity to produce up to 111 million broiler chickens per year. This represents approximately 17% of Australia's annual broiler chicken production.
ProTen's aim is to be the market leader in the design, construction, and operation of broiler chicken farms in Australia. ProTen attributes a great deal of its past success to the adoption and implementation of a continuous improvement culture that encourages employees and other stakeholders to share new ideas and improved practices.
ProTen started with one man and one shed in Halcombe, New Zealand in 1987 - Max Bryant. Starting in 1995 Max was the principal behind the establishment of a number of additional farms in New Zealand.
ProTen was formed in 2001 with the amalgamation of seven of these farms.
