Merial Animal Health is a world-leading animal health company. We are an innovation-driven provider of products and solutions that enhance the health, well-being and performance of animals.

The pork production business has been changing - consolidation, shifts in consumer attitude, increasing sophistication in the ways pork is marketed, and growing public awareness of issues related to food-animal production, animal health, and food safety have all affected pork industry practices.
