Sex reversal in poultry embryo for the broiler industry - increased meat production with the same resources.

Meet the Founders

Ovo Technology

OVO Technology is developing sex reversal technology for the broiler industry. In broiler breeds, males are considered 15-20% more economically efficient than females. A broiler grower can profit $0.5 more for every male he grows.

Our solution is a natural material composition injected directly to chicken embryos, and result in the development of female broilers that function like males in terms of weight gain and feed-conversion-ratio. The materials we use are safe for human consumption in large dosages.

Ovo was founded in 2018, has a team of 4 employees, raised $500k to date, has 2 provisional patents for its material composition, reached 80%-85% males in >1000-eggs experiments, and has a pilot with Israel’s largest broiler production company.
