Hypor has signed an agreement with Farmers Sp. z.o.o., a Polish agricultural company, for the production and distribution of breeding pigs in the Polish market. Farmers Sp. z.o.o. is owned by the Kowalewski family and is located in Goldap in the North East of Poland.
A new farm was built with a capacity of 700 sows and at the end of 2007, the farm started up with high health animals delivered from the Hypor nucleus farms in Germany. In 2009 another farm located in the same area with a capacity of 700 sows will also start to produce Hypor PS gilts. These farms with the high health status are located in a unique non-dense pig area which will ensure the best high health genetics.
Mr. Peter Kowalewski, Managing Director of Farmer Sp. z.o.o. is very pleased with this agreement. He said, “This is a milestone in the development of our company’s activities. The superior genetics will positively impact the industry with benefits in efficiencies for producers and fine quality pork for retailers and consumers. Distribution of Hypor high health animals in Poland will be one of the key attributes of our company.”
Hypor's Regional Manager Mr. Ton ten Dam said he is very proud to have this agreement signed with a progressive company like Farmer Sp. z.o.o. “With Hypor’s breeding know-how and local expertise of our partners, we are able to further develop the Polish market rapidly with benefits for the whole chain,”
