“Free of Chick Culling” – what motivates us at respeggt

We are delighted that you are interested in ending chick culling with us and that you would like to join us in our efforts to achieve this. By doing so, you are supporting those hatcheries and laying hen farms that are committed to a responsibly-minded way of working. And you are saving male chicks from a very ethically questionable fate!

At respeggt group, headquartered in both Germany and the Netherlands, we face the complex challenge of ending chick culling each and every day.

Since our founding in 2019, our international, highly motivated team, with expertise in the agricultural sciences, agricultural engineering, the economic sciences and IT, are passionate about keeping our promise “Free of Chick Culling”. In this endeavour, we are supported by our numerous strong partners – with new partners joining us every day. Up till now, we are responsible for already having delivered more than one billion respeggt eggs and more than five million respeggt laying hens into the supply chains of table egg production. Our technology is continuously being developed by our team in the Netherlands to ensure it is even more precise and efficient.

The team

Martijn Haarman Managing Director

Eggs are the most efficient source of animal protein for humans. With technical solutions, we can make egg production even more sustainable, especially when it comes to animal welfare. As a team, we successfully convey this message and this certainty to our partners and consumers.

Carmen Uphoff Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Each day, we continue our aim to end chick culling. We are a very dynamic and young team. For this reason, our work is never boring and we support each other very well. This is incredibly motivating!

Dr. Ludger Breloh Chairman of the advisory board

Nowadays, you often don't know which new challenges you might be facing tomorrow. Our business decisions must constantly be reoriented to the changing political framework as well as the demands of stakeholders and partners in the egg production supply chains.

Silvin Faulstich Business Development Manager

No two days are the same! The dynamic nature of the tasks at respeggt in the interacting area between politics, agriculture and trade makes the work exciting and varied. There is something new to learn every day!

Kristin Höller Head of HR

We have a great spirit! It is incredible to see how much can be achieved in a small and dynamic team when each individual is passionate about what we do.

Dr. Ana E. Blanco Head of Supply Chain Management

Together with our respeggt system partners, we not only create a product with the added value of “Free of Chick Culling”, but, thanks to the transparency of our supply chain, we also ensure that the final product keeps our promise through the use of our heart-shaped respeggt label.

Niklas Poppelreuter Supply Chain Manager

Thanks to the combination of administrative and practical work, as well as communication with all the parties involved in the supply chains, our work is full of variety and a lot of fun.
