US-based company opens animal nutrition plant in Malolos
Malolos City Mayor Christian Natividad was optimistic that the first animal nutrition premix plant recently opened by an American-owned agriculture company would be a boon for the local community.
Cargill invested $12 million in First Bulacan Industrial Park located in Malolos, Bulacan. Fifty local employees are expected to be employed to produce animal nutrition premix solutions under the “Provimi” brand.
“The city of Malolos is appreciative of Cargill’s presence, a big boost to our cities’ economic and employment opportunities. We hope to reciprocate by providing all the needed assistance and better business ambiance to make Cargill’s project a success,” Natividad said.
According to Cargill, the investment was made to increase demand from medium and large livestock farms and feed millers in the Philippines and Southeast Asian countries.
“The Philippines and Southeast Asian countries are seeing increased consumer demand for meat products, especially pork and chicken,” said Noel Kim, general manager of Cargill Provimi, Philippines.
