Argentina Chamber of Poultry Producers and Industries


In recent years, our sector has been very active in terms of investment and increased production, in a context of increased prices of inputs, raw materials and associated services, which posed challenges to the competitiveness of industry at the international level.

The Argentine poultry industry has positioned itself as a regional leader, with CAPIA as the epicenter of the activity.

Annually, the Chamber organizes a series of meetings with producers at its headquarters, and other zonal (five on average) in the interior of the country.

In the last exercise, for example, presentations were made in Córdoba, Mendoza, San Juan, Manzanares (Buenos Aires) and Mar del Plata.

In addition to an Arbitration Committee, the Chamber has an Industrial Relations Committee, whose main activity is to look after the interests of companies in the industry.

In this regard, meetings are held with the main trade unions in the sector to agree on wage agreements and working conditions.

For its part, for a couple of years, the Egg Promotion Committee works together with the Nutritional Information Center (CIN) in the dissemination of the qualities of our product.

Year after year, the Chamber celebrates World Egg Week, sending allegorical products to different media.

In 2011, more than 500 cakes and 250 cookies were distributed in the Federal Capital, Greater Buenos Aires and in different cities in the interior of the country. In 2012 it was time for egg-shaped cupcakes, to position our food throughout the Nation.

CAPIA representatives actively participate in all national, regional and international forums and congresses related to poultry farming. In 2011, the XXII Latin American Poultry Congress was organized in Buenos Aires, with the participation of delegations from more than 60 countries from five continents, setting a historical record for this type of meeting.

The activity was declared of National Interest by the Presidency of the Nation; of Economic Interest by the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, and of provincial interest by the Government of the Province of Entre Ríos.

Every two years, the Chamber also organizes the Poultry exhibition together with Pigs and the International Seminar on Poultry Sciences, spaces in which producers, entrepreneurs linked to the activity, university students and specialists from the most varied disciplines come together to share information and conduct business.
