Japfa Comfeed Vietnam Co. Ltd. (Japfa Vietnam) has officially opened a 48,000-head swine farm in Phu Rieng District, Binh Phuoc Province.

With a total investment of nearly VND400 billion, the 40 hectares farm will provide a safe and sustainable pork supply source to meet the demands of the local market.

With 24 barns and 48,000-head capacity, Phu Rieng farm will supply more than 100,000 pigs, equivalent to more than 11,000 tonnes per year.

“It is the pioneer swine farm in Viet Nam designed and built in accordance with the world's latest models and advanced technology,” said Arif Widjaja, General Director of Japfa Viet Nam.

“To improve efficiency, the farm is built with fully automatic technology and is easy to clean, reducing the construction area by up to 40 per cent. It has also reduced operating costs and is eco-friendly thanks to the wastewater treatment system following Government standards.”

The opening of Phu Rieng fattening swine farm with 48,000 heads is part of great efforts of the company in controlling all the self-contained animal husbandry supply chain, from genetics to breeding sources, feed, pen structure, nutrition and biosafety.

“We hope that the new farm will contribute to stabilising pig prices and improving Viet Nam’s animal husbandry standards,” said Widjaja.

Japfa entered Viet Nam in 1996 through the joint venture with the State-owned Vietnam Livestock Corporation. In 1999, the company became a 100 per cent foreign-owned company under the name of Japfa Comfeed Vietnam Co., Ltd, with headquarters in Huong Canh Town, Binh Xuyen District, Vinh Phuc Province.

The company is now operating six feed production factories, more than 1,000 poultry and swine farms, and a network of more than 40 stores selling meat and processed foods under the brand name of Japfa Best.

With over 5,000 skilled employees, Japfa is gradually expanding its business, contributing to animal husbandry development in Viet Nam. — VNS
