CEBU, Philippines —  To help the Philippines reduce its dependence on meat exports, Pilmico Foods Corporation has incurred sizeable investments to increase sow capacity, efficiencies in the country’s pork supply chain.

 “Pilmico’s long-term business success is anchored on our ability to help our stakeholders -- build partnerships, support them in their entrepreneurial endeavors, and see to it that they grow their businesses over the long term. We are also committed to working with the government, the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), and our fellow meat producers to ensure the longstanding success of the agribusiness sector in the Philippines,” said Pilmico Food Group President and CEO Tristan Aboitiz.

According to Aboitiz, the company continues to put investments in its swine raising business, supporting the hog raising industry with initiatives such as increasing sow capacity, heightened  biosecurity, farm zoning, and introducing efficiencies in the pork supply chain.

These initiatives, he explained, are aimed at encouraging long-term growth and help secure the future of the livestock industry in collaboration with key stakeholders.

The food company continues to expand its swine herd in the wake of ASF and is looking to further modernize the processing of pork with its operation of Tarlac Meatmasters, Pilmico’s triple-A slaughter and meat cutting facility in Bamban, Tarlac that aims to process and serve quality meat to consumers in Luzon.
