Our Company

At Soychú, we are proud of being an Argentine company that has grown, developed, innovated and led the poultry sector for over 50 years.

We started as a family business in 1962 in Gualeguay, Entre Ríos. At the beginning, we were engaged in live poultry purchase, slaughter, sale and distribution in the city of Buenos Aires and in Greater Buenos Aires. We had built a small plant in a leased property and owned our manufacturing machinery.

In 1968, with the aim of integrating our production processes, we opened our first poultry raising farm: La Pionera. It was just the first of our many facilities of our own. Today, we own slaughter houses, hatcheries, balanced feed plants and breeder chicken facilities. At the same time, we contribute to sustainability by using our production surplus to manufacture flour and oil.

Our on-going goal at Soychú has always been to continue growing and to increase our capacities. Throughout time, Soychú has become an overall business chain, where we control the quality of our final products in full as well as the relationships with all stakeholders.

We started as a small family business. Today, we can proudly say that we are one of the largest poultry processing companies in Argentina aiming at international markets.
