“Arax” poultry was established in 1997 on the basis of “Jrarat” poultry, which in Soviet times was the largest poultry in Armenia. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the poultry “Jrarat” was reopened in 2001, after joining the X-Group concern (www.xgroup.am).
Much work was done to restore production volumes, as well as research work on raising a new Cobb breeder flock in a new Armenia.Thanks to large investments, already in 2002 the factory was producing and selling 1,600 tons of chicken meat and meat products.
The production capacity allowed the poultry to carry out the entire process, from raising day-old chicks to slaughtering and selling broilers and producing table eggs. Thanks to investments, a modern feed mill was reconstructed at the plant.
