DanBred to open up a multiplier in Mexico

The company says the deal was struck after it gained local breeding success with 17.3 liveborn piglets on average and the high standards of food safety and animal welfare in Denmark.

DanBred closed the agreement with local investors during the recent Danish business delegation to Mexico, led by the Minister for Environment & Food Mr. Esben Lunde Larsen and the Danish Agriculture and Food Council.

“The new trade agreement between EU and Mexico followed by the Danish business delegation and our recent successful breeding results under local conditions, could not have made a better timing for us. We see a great demand and a huge potential in the Mexican market”, says Thomas O. Hansen, Sales Director Americas, DanBred.

The company said in a statement that it has tested their genetics in Mexico for the past year. The first Danbred F1 farrowing in Mexico came off to a good start with 17,3 liveborn piglets average on 45 gilts.
