The comprehensive range of products and services provided by Hobet Group companies cater for all the needs of poultry farming, right up to the end consumer. The entire production chain is traceable from the breeding hens to the supermarket shelf. This gives us networked control of all stages of the supply chain and assures our high quality standards are met.
Parent stock birds – Hatching eggs
Breeding chicks and rearing young hens are the upstream stages of egg production. Without parent stock birds there would be no hatching eggs. The cycle of high-quality production therefore already starts here, with farms that breed the parent stock birds. Several flocks of parent stock birds ensure enough hatching eggs are available for chick production.
We attach great importance to the animal-friendly treatment and excellent health of our chicks. Thanks to a sophisticated quality management system and complete traceability, we are helping to promote high standards in the Swiss poultry industry.

Adequate veterinary care and advice is a top priority for all poultry farms across Switzerland. GalliVet SA is the newest member of the Hobet Group, and started trading in 2019. The idea is to create a centre of excellence in the coming years which, backed by the many years of know-how acquired by its sister companies and the specialist knowledge of vets, is able to deliver a professional and exclusive service to all its customers.
Assuring the chicks’ welfare is of primary importance in the company’s organic hatchery. Chicks are delivered in specially equipped vehicles by the company’s trained personnel. All chicks leave the hatchery with their own passport. This makes it possible for customers to trace the chicks’ origins right back to the parent stock birds. The company is particularly proud of the excellent quality of its chicks.
Pollicoltura Gordola SA is a poultry farm in the Canton of Ticino. It produces and sells eggs from 18,000 brown laying hens farmed organically.
The farm’s production satisfies the strict guidelines of BTS and RAUS V regulations (Animal welfare Standards). Operations are controlled by Schweizer Tierschutz, the Swiss animal welfare Organisation. Regular checks for salmonella and worms are part of the quality and hygiene concept.
Fresh eggs are delivered daily to our regional customers. In addition, the farm’s own shop sells eggs, hens, packaging materials and animal feed for hens.
In 2023, the new packing centre came into operation in Cadenazzo in the canton of Ticino. Eggs from throughout the canton are packed here and delivered to all types of wholesalers, retailers, direct marketers and trading companies.
Fresh eggs from the region – for Ticino and the adjacent cantons. Buying locally makes ecological sense!
