PHILIPPINES - Uni-rich Agro Industrial Corp., a customer-turned-multiplier in Tarlac, will be all set to supply its homegrown PIC stocks by June.

After having been a satisfied customer of PIC for many years, the management entered into a supply agreement with PIC in May 2011 to allocate a 500-sow module for GPs to produce Camborough 24 parent gilts. This will make more parent gilts available to PIC customers and support conversion of the 1,000-sow Uni-rich commercial herd to 100 per cent PIC genetics.

“We are delighted about this development with Uni-rich, and we’re honored for the trust that has been given to PIC through the years. Having high standards not only in genetics, but also in health and technical services, they have seen a competent partner in PIC that has and will continue to deliver their requirements,” said Emmanuel Go, PIC Sales and Marketing Manager.

Truck disinfection facility

As part of their commitment to PIC’s strict health assurance program, Uni-rich has invested in an automated truck disinfection facility, shower-in shower-out facility, reconstruction of employees’ quarters, and subdivision of the farm into 2 modules.

Uni-rich adds to the existing supply network of PIC that consists of 4 nucleus farms, 13 multiplication units and 5 distribution centers spread across the country. This development reinforces PIC’s position as the leading supplier of healthy genetics to the nation’s 1.6m sow herd.
