TOPIGS, an international pig breeding company, has reorganized its worldwide activities into three regions; Europe, the Americas and Asia/Pacific/Africa. This reorganization will allow TOPIGS to better accommodate the growth of its activities. The new structure also creates more synergy and enables TOPIGS to help its clients more efficiently in terms of service, genetic progress and support. The regions are managed by regional directors Peter van Kemenade (Americas), Glen Illing (Asia/Pacific/Africa) and Arno van de Laar (Europe). They report to CEO Martin Bijl.


With a production of more than 1,250,000 crossbred gilts and over 7 million doses of semen per year, Dutch-based TOPIGS is one of the largest genetics suppliers in the world. Research, innovation and genetic improvement are the cornerstones of the company.
