As one of the three strategic markets of Japfa Group in Asia, Vietnam always receives strong support in terms of international experience and finance of Japfa Group in investment and business expansion activities.”

“Overcoming challenges caused by the pandemic, Japfa Vietnam is now in a favorable stage to strongly expand its business activities. With the support of the Vietnamese Government, the leaders of Binh Phuoc Province, partners and customers, we are confident that Japfa Vietnam will fare well in the coming time, contributing considerably to Vietnam’s target to make her animal husbandry industry on par with those of developed countries in the region by 2030,” said Mr. Arif.

Currently, Japfa Vietnam operates a farm system with a capacity of more than 264.000 pigs for meat and 660,000 chickens per year. In the coming time, the company will put into operation two big animal husbandry projects in Binh Phuoc province with a total investment of about VND 670 billion.

Specifically, in October 2020, Japfa Vietnam started work on its high-tech pig farm capitalized at nearly VND500 billion (approximately US$22 million) in Long Ha Commune, Phu Rieng District, Binh Phuoc Province. This project, one of the largest pig-for-meat farms of the country, is built on an area of some 40 hectares, capable of accommodating 48,000 pigs for meat and estimated to supply over 14,000 tons of pork annually for the market.

In addition, Japfa Vietnam is building breeder pig farms costing VND170 billion in Dak Wi Hamlet, Dak Nhau Commune, Bu Dang District, Binh Phuoc Province, on a 60-hectare area. The project includes two farms that can rear up to 15,000 sows. These farms are equipped with the most advanced technology, with an automatic system for all feeding processes. Wastewater is treated for reuse without being discharged into the environment. As planned, this animal husbandry project will be officially put into operation in early 2021 to supply breeder pigs for the domestic market.
