Fragmentation has been the rule so far for the pig slaughtering and processing sector in China, with the top three operators (Shineway/Shuanghui, Yurun Food Group, and People's Food Holdings) having only about 5% of the market between them. But Yurun is reported by the South China Post as planning to increase its own slaughter capacity from 14.5 million to18 million pigs/year by 2010. The group has made acquisitions in the sector since the last part of 2007 and also wants to add to its involvement in producing the pigs for its plants.
