Cargill is bolstering its young animal nutrition capability by investing more than $15 million USD investment to add a piglet feed production line at its existing premix and nutrition facility in Tianjin, China. The nearly 7,000-square-meter young animal nutrition 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.
