Katayama’s history is not only beautiful because it is almost 80 years old, but also because it is marked by the dedication, effort and affection of a family that has always believed that with honesty and perseverance, it is possible to achieve success. The farm started in Guararapes / SP with only 250 white leghorn chicks, and gradually grew into a giant, strong and vigorous company. There are many employees who, day after day, excel and work together with one goal: to deliver the best product to the consumer.
From the earliest days of life, chicks receive proper treatment and are cared for by specialists from various fields who are responsible for the full care of birds, from the nursery to the laying phase. All birds are vaccinated, nutritionally balanced, and stay in climate controlled environments, thus reducing the risk of contamination.
Katayama eggs are washed one by one and also go through several verification steps to ensure that they all come out clean, sanitized and healthy
