Cargill opens US$12M animal nutrition premix plant in PH
To meet increasing demand from medium and large livestock farms and feed millers in the Philippines and Southeast Asian countries, Cargill just opened its first animal nutrition premix plant in the Philippines.
Cargill said it has invested US$12 million to build the plant, where 50 local employees will produce animal nutrition premix solutions that will be made available to customers under the Provimi brand.
“The Philippines and Southeast Asian countries are seeing increased consumer demand for meat products, especially pork and chicken. This is great news for the growth potential of local livestock farms and feed millers,” said Noel Kim, general manager of Cargill Provimi, Philippines.
“At our premix plant, Cargill can now manufacture the animal nutrition products these producers need to sustainably deliver high quality, safe, affordable meat to consumers,” he added.
For his part, Chuck Warta, president of Cargill Premix and Nutrition, said the company is committed to the Philippines and Southeast Asia.
“With the population and income growth driving demand for animal protein in the region, Cargill knows how important it is to invest here, supporting local farmers and creating additional job opportunities as a result of our growth,” Warte said.
