Møllevang, one of Denmark’s leading pig breeding companies, and PIC, the global leader in swine genetics, have announced that the two companies have entered into a strategic relationship.
The strategic relationship was announced in November 2017 and all closing conditions have now been fulfilled. The relationship combines PIC’s and Møllevang’s complementary supply chains, sales and marketing infrastructure, and genetics for the benefit of pig producers globally.
As a result of the strategic relationships, PIC and Møllevang will invest in their supply and sales infrastructure in order to ensure that producers in Denmark have access to PIC products, such as its leading PIC408 Pietrain. PIC will also offer producers in various countries outside Denmark access to Møllevang products.
Niels Pedersen, CEO of Møllevang, said: “This is an exciting moment for Møllevang. PIC’s technological leadership and global scale is a complementary fit for Møllevang. Together, we can offer our customers access to the highest quality breeding stock and technical services.”
Bill Christianson, COO of PIC, added: “We look forward to work with Møllevang to grow our presence in Denmark, strengthen the supply chain, and further accelerate genetic gain to make the world’s best pig. Our goal is to make PIC and Møllevang customers the most successful producers in the world.”
