History

ProOvo is based in Slovakia and is focused on the production of eggs from the rearing of hens to the classification, packing and distribution of eggs. Today ProOvo consists of two farms, one for rearing of hens in Svätý Jur, and one for production of eggs in Bernolakovo.

The company was founded in 1967 by three agricultural companies within the Bratislava region as the District Poultry Association aimed at producing eggs for consuming. In 2003, the company was taken over by a larger agricultural company Polnovakia Agrar, which made substantial investments in the two farms. This included a complete reconstruction of the facilities, meaning ProOvo's egg production today complies with all norms of the European Legislative on egg-hens´ rearing, egg producing, grading and classification as well as the sale of eggs.

The company holds its own production of hens based on the purchase of day-old chicks from an external partner. ProOvo hen farm has a total capacity of 178.000 hens production. With average production cycles the farm can produce around 48 - 50 million eggs annually. The eggs are primarily sold to retail shops in Slovakia.

Quality eggs

Quality is key for ProOvo and we want to produce quality eggs for the consumer. It is our responsibility to ensure the production processes resulting in consistent and high quality eggs. This means quality in all parts of the egg production from the control of raw materials in the fodder as well as the quality control of our final fodder mixtures, health of our hens, collection of eggs from the barns, classifying and packing of eggs, to the final step which is distribution of eggs to the retail stores.

As a consequence of this focus, we demand a lot from ourselves and our partners, securing all our equipment and facilities are in good conditions. We adapted continuously all our technologies so they comply with all requirements within the SK/EU legislations for animal welfare and food safety.

For further description see the section under Quality and Safety.

Jaroslav Jaslovský

How long have you been working in ProOvo?

From its foundation and constantly since 1975, May 1st. I´ve been working in different positions and therefore gained a lot of knowledge about ProOvo and especially the egg production.

How many eggs are produced and hens bred annually at your farm?

It depends on the average number of hens we have a year on the farm, but in general egg production ranges from 40 to 50 million annually.

How many people work at the farm?

At the farm in Svätý Jur where we breed the chicks, we are three colleagues working together. At our farm in Bernolákovo where the physical egg production, packaging and distribution is carried out, we have 15 colleagues. When moving the hens from the Svätý Jur farm to Bernolákovo farm, we use around 40 part-time workers.

How many years have you worked with egg production?

15 years, directly with eggs.

What is the most important thing for you in egg production?

Good quality, healthy yolk, satisfied customers, and a good price, of course.

What is important to make egg production a profitable business?

To ensure animals everything they need for life (quality fodder, water, air) and thus achieve high production, quality and, of course, great sales.

Why do you like to work with egg production?

I was interested in agriculture and working with animals since I was a child. My dream became my life´s journey. It is a good feeling when I see the results of my work in the quantity and quality of eggs, and I´m very satisfied when the animals produce according to my projection. Also, working with human resources is very interesting, even if conditions in our country are not always easy.
