Cambodian Company Looks to Double Pig Production

A Cambodian company has announced plans to double its hog production by 2019 to meet that country’s pork demand. Uthai Tantipimolphan, president of CP Cambodia, a subsidiary of Thai conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Co. Limited, said the company will spend $8 million to increase production from the current one million hogs to two million over five years.

Cambodia needs nearly 200,000 of swine per month, and currently CP Cambodia supplies some 60,000 head – both piglets and 3-week-old weaning piglets – to local markets per month. According to the Cambodian Pig Raising Association, Cambodia imports more than 1,000 head of swine from neighboring nations such as Vietnam and Thailand every month.
