20 years of industry experience. Network of specialists. Effective service from hands on field assignments to board rooms.

Pomicon is led by Tommi Saksala. He has gained extensive practical and management skills about broiler and turkey meat supply chain operations mainly from Finland and Sweden. These countries provide a good learning ground of broiler and turkey meat operations because of the following reasons:

  1. A challenging climate – everything from +30 to -30ºC with both high and low relative humidity.
  2. Excellent bird performance through out the year, without compromised stocking densities.
  3. Advanced production and processing technology, high productivity.
  4. Strict biosecurity and hygienic procedures.
  5. Less than 1% Salmonella contaminated flocks.
