PIC Asia's Philippines division has announced two agreements to grow its dam line production base by more than 5,000 GGPs and GPs.

These additions, according to the company, will enhance the existing supply network of three nucleus farms, 12 multiplication units and five distribution centers.

Construction of a Venvi Agro-Industrial Ventures Corp. 2,400-sow level facility began in August 2010, within a 460 hectare property in San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte, while RDF Meatshop Inc. held the groundbreaking ceremony for its 2,500 sow unit in Tarlac in February, with stocking scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2011.
