Karachi: World’s most prestigious business school in the United States of America, Harvard Business School (HBS) has selected a Pakistani company, K&N’s, as a case study.
HBS faculty members select companies from around the world for a written account of a company focusing on strategic business issues, of interest to a global audience, which are then used for classroom discussions. HBS case studies are world renowned, and not only used by HBS faculty, but also by majority of leading business schools and universities around the world for teaching.
Chief Executive of K&N’s, Khalil Sattar, said it is not only a great honour for the company but also for Pakistani business community and the nation. We faced different challenges but remained focused and committed to our motive, a single minded objective of providing better nutrition for health and happiness of the nation. This credit also goes to all employees of K&N’s.
K&N’s is greatly honoured with this achievement, as for any company, becoming a HBS case study is a great honour. While felicitating K&N’s, Pakistan Poultry Association (PPA) said is proud to have its founding member featured as a HBS case study as it is the only company from Pakistan to have been chosen by HBS to write the case study and use it in its executive education programs. This is also a great achievement as a very positive image of Pakistan will be reflected through the K&N’s case study reading and discussions by thought-leaders and key decision makers from the global food and agribusiness industry, and university students alike, around the world.
PPA recommended to the Government of Punjab and the Government of Pakistan to honour K&N’s on this milestone achievement for the private business sector, Pakistan’s poultry industry and our country.
K&N’s is a founding pillar and beacon for Pakistan’s Poultry Industry, which started in 1964 and integrated all poultry production activities under one umbrella for providing better nutrition, through poultry, for health and happiness of the nation.
K&N’s integrated poultry operations include grand parent breeding, parent breeding, hatching, feed milling, broiler growing, poultry processing, and production of ready-to-cook & fully cooked chicken products. K&N’s Quality Assurance Lab monitors and regulates the integrated poultry operations to ensure K&N’s chicken products are wholesome, safe and healthy. K&N’s manages its own product distribution (including Pakistan’s most extensive cold-chain distribution system) and a chain of chicken stores for its range of chicken products.
