Maple Leaf's Elite Swine rebranded
Canadian Maple Leaf Foods has announced last week that
it has rebranded its hog production company Elite Swine as Maple Leaf
This move is part of a reorganisation announced last year in which Maple Leaf
indicated that it would reduce the number of hogs it produces and manages
through assuming 100% ownership of fewer farms while at the same time
"optimising the value" of each hog.
Modern pork production
Elite Swine has evolved in the last twenty years into Canada's largest swine
management company. Its success lies in its focus on a modern Canadian approach
to pork production incorporating production efficiencies, private ownership and
marketing opportunities associated with large-scale integrated hog production.
In a press release from Maple Leaf Foods, Maple Leaf Agri-Farms will be
operated as an "independent operating company".
