Twenty-seven pork producers with each over 100,000 sows can claim the title of Global Mega Producers this year. The Mega Global Producers are as diverse as their geographic location.

With multi-country headquarters in the United States, Hong Kong and China, WH Group LLC dominates pork production with the acquisition of U.S.’ largest hog producer, Smithfield Foods, in 2013, owning 1.135 million sows.

The company holds the title of largest pork company in the world as top dog for pork processing and hog production. Its global platform integrates hog production, hog slaughtering and the processing and distribution of packaged meats and fresh pork, placing it in the No. 1 position in the entire key segments of the pork industry — the European Union, the United States and China.

Global Mega Producer is a comprehensive picture of the worldwide pork industry. This elite listing of hog farms with over 100,000 sows illustrates the diversity of the global swine business.
