Pilmico Animal Nutrition Corp., the food and agribusiness unit of the Aboitiz Group, introduced a new and improved formulation for its premium hog feed line, Elite XP that improves hogs’ growth, health, and reproduction.
Pilmico assistant vice president of nutrition and research Joana Jayson-Pequiro said the newly-reformulated swine feeds is one of their contributions as they push for food security in the Philippines.
“To continue delivering our mission to feed humanity, Pilmico is committed to being at the forefront of transforming our products and services and helping our partners in the swine industry to reach their full potential,” she said.
She said the production of fortified feeds is one of the many initiatives the company pursues to continue its mission to achieve a sustainable and food-secure country.
Elite XP was revamped to provide a better nutrition solution for hogs as an answer to the continued threats to swine health.
The leveled-up formulation contains new features, Immuno-Growth Factor and Piglet+ Technology, designed to strengthen the health and improve the growth of pigs and optimize breeder pigs’ full genetic potential.
With Elite XP’s new formula that helps speed up the efficient growth and productivity of pigs, Pilmico aims to boost the recovery of the swine industry and help swine farmers meet the country’s high demand for pork.
Pilmico’s Elite XP was launched across the country from Ilocos Region to the province of Zamboanga through a two-month roadshow.
Around 2,300 swine farmers, agribusiness store owners, local government officials and veterinarians attended Elite XP’s launch events.
