Cargill opens $12-m PH plant

Cargill said it opened its first animal nutrition premix plant in the Philippines to meet increasing demand from medium and large livestock farms and feed millers in Southeast Asia.

Cargill said it invested $12 million to open the plant at First Bulacan Industrial Park in Malolos, Bulacan where 50 local employees would produce animal nutrition premix solutions, made available to customers under the Provimi brand. An opening ceremony was held today at the plant, located in First Bulacan Industrial Park in Malolos, Bulacan.

“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,” Kim said.

Malolos City Mayor Christian Natividad said Cargill’s presence in the area would be a boon for the local community. “The City of Malolos is appreciative of Cargill’s presence, a big boost to our cities’ economic and employment opportunities. We hope to reciprocate by providing all the needed assistance and better business ambience to make Cargill’s project a success,” Natividad said.
