Hypor ships first GGP and GP pigs to Vietnam
Hypor, the pig breeding division of Hendrix Genetics, announced today that their first delivery of GGPs/GPs to Vietnam arrived on August 30.
Japfa Comfeed Vietnam, a division of well established and successful agriculture integrator PT Japfa Comfeed Indonesia, accepted delivery of the Canadian produced breeding stock for their new pork production business venture.
The arrival of the Hypor genetics highlights the commitment of Japfa Comfeed Vietnam to develop a supply of quality pork products for the growing local market.
Raf Beeren, deputy managing director, Hypor sees the introduction of his company's genetics into the Vietnamese market as a natural progression of market share growth in Asia.
"Building on our experiences in Japan, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand and China, we have a long history for developing partnerships with successful integrators in this region and Japfa Comfeed has an equally distinguished record in animal feed manufacturing, chicken breeding, poultry processing and aquaculture farming throughout the region," said Beeren.
Vietnam's agriculture sector and specifically its pork production targets are most ambitious with analysts predicting more than a 40% increase in production in the next three years. The country currently has the world's fourth largest sow population.
Dr Kuswanto, senior vice president, Japfa Comfeed Vietnam, sees unlimited opportunities for both Hypor and Japfa in this market. He is targeting one million tonnes of annual feed production for the project by 2015.
