EveryPig joins Glacier Pig Management to expand into Canada

The distribution agreement between the companies is aimed at helping pork producers across Canada stay on top of pig health issues.

Intelligent pig health management platform, EveryPig, has announced that it it is expanding to the Canadian marketplace through a new strategic partnership with Glacier Pig Management. The partnership is the result of a distribution agreement between the companies aimed at helping pork producers across Canada stay on top of pig health issues, increase farm biosecurity, monitor inventory remotely and view caregiving and farm manager activity, among other key benefits.

Chris Tokaruk, president of TTT Stock Co. and Glacier Pig Management based in Winnipeg, Canada, will be the first to take the wide-ranging benefits of EveryPig’s easy-to-use platform to his clients in Canada and Montana. Tokaruk has more than 15 years of experience in the Canadian pig market working with producers and veterinarians. 

“EveryPig represents what’s next when it comes to increased transparency in swine health but also, as a result, ensuring the safety in the food chain,” Tokaruk says. “We’re engaged in discussions with large, integrated pork powerhouses, as well as swine veterinary clinics that see the need to leverage their limited veterinary resources to offer more thorough service to more clients, faster.”

“Chris’s reputation in the Canadian pork production industry has already opened numerous doors for EveryPig and we’re excited to be expanding our footprint north of the border,” says Chris Bomgaars, founder of EveryPig. “Canadian producers are resilient and forward-thinking. We’re already getting much more interest in Canada than we expected this early on.”
