Vissan helps to reduce pig oversupply

13.06.2017

Vietnam Meat Industries JSC (Vissan) has said that it will buy and slaughter an additional 200-300 pigs a day, raising its additional purchases over the normal number to 500-600 pigs a day to reduce oversupply and help farmers. Nguyen Ngoc An, General Director said the move has raised the total number of pigs slaughtered at its facilities to 1600-1800 a day.

Nguyen Phuc Khoa, Chairman said Vissan has stopped pork imports since February and has increased local purchase. To stimulate demand, Vissan will continue to offer 10-15% discounts on certain pork products at Saigon Co-op outlets, Vinmart, Vinmart+ and other supermarkets, that sell its pork products. In addition, it will cut prices by 5-10% on some processed food.
