Cargill has invested US$12mn to open the plant, where 50 local employees will produce animal nutrition premix solutions, made available to customers under the Provimi brand.

“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.”

Malolos City Mayor Christian Natividad praised Cargill’s presence in the area as 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,” Mayor Natividad said.

Chuck Warta, president, Cargill Premix and Nutrition said, “Cargill is committed to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. With the population and income growth driving demand for animal protein in the region, Cargill knows how important it is to invest here, supporting local farmers and creating additional job opportunities as a result of our growth.”
