The overarching goal, as articulated by Singh, is to position Poultry India as a knowledge opener for the poultry farming community. In doing so, the event becomes a catalyst for elevating the industry's standards. Singh, while representing IPEMA, expressed a commitment to ensuring that farmers are well-informed and equipped to make choices that contribute to the sector's growth.

The farmer can grasp what he is going to acquire from us and be aware of the product and its quality because we are showcasing cutting-edge technology here with minimal financial outlay. We are the second-largest producer of chicken, and we strive to be number one. We hope to make an impact in terms of technology, best affordable prices, and a one-stop solution for everything.”
