Cargill to expand piglet feed production line in China
Cargill is bolstering its young animal nutrition capability by investing more than US$15 million to add a piglet feed production line at its existing premix and nutrition facility in Tianjin, China.
The nearly 7,000-square-metre facility features "cutting-edge technology and systems of operational excellence" to produce Neopigg™, a sustainable world-class piglet feed.
"Early life nutrition impacts an animal's livability, health and lifetime growth efficiency," said John Fering, managing director for Cargill Premix and Nutrition business in China. "This investment equips our customers with the right nutrition for this critical time in their young animals' development."
The new production line uses an advanced, traceable barcode management system during production, which ensures the sustainability and quality of the products delivered to customers, from raw material to finished product.
"We are committed to providing best-in-class products with consistent quality," Fering added. "This new facility allows us to deliver on that promise by producing Neopigg at a facility that follows HACCP and FSSC22000."
The piglet feed production line is expected to create 20 new jobs at the Tianjin facility.
