OUR LAST YEAR IN BRIEF

March 2020
The marketing department gets a new member as Saskia Riedel joins company.
The team starts planning a new company website.

H&N International is an exciting company, so we need our website to show that.

New images, a new navigational structure, The Chickipedia as our own online encyclopedia, the campus as central place of learning and study, including a library, an auditorium and a science hub.News are displayed in a dedicated Newsroom with a news reel on the front site.
Oh, and the front site… yes, our site looks different. Because H&N International is different. Our intro was created to illustrate that we are really into our business, and that our birds are truly international with a global footprint.

April 2020

As we start planning the new edition of our “Facts that Figure” company magazine we soon recognize that this years’ edition will be a special one. Because of the Anniversary, but also because there are so many things to tell and show.
First and foremost, there are three great customer stories all from long-term customers as center pieces. More content can be seen here:


Meanwhile more and more restrictions due to the pandemic come up. It dawns on everyone that travelling, events and trainings will be affected.
We need a Plan B – and it must be as good or even better than Plan A. Because H&N International still has to step out and show our future agenda for the next 75 years and more.
The year will be tough on everyone, but we won’t let ourselves be tied down.

August 2020
The new website has already launched its self-step by step and with more subsites being added like for instance the VIP-Lounge and the Order Online for Parent Stock customers.


Now is the time to also launch the Anniversary Edition of the “Facts that Figure”, the printed edition is almost half a kilogram (482 grams to be precise) of company information, and it is mirrored by a digital edition as a first in kind of the new online “Facts that Figure” to come.

 

October 2020
We take the Academy online and decide for “home delivery” of the content: One week, three different events over three time zones. Almost 500 participants! Not bad for a start.

November 2020
Planning starts for “The Oval Eggspedition”, our first company movie.

December 2020

The same content will also be available in future as a printed poster with a special folding that customers will be able to get for their marketing purposes.

The H&N Online Museum opens its doors to a timeline of the company.
