Get acquainted with the
Global Mega Produce
A program of recognition led by National Hog Farmer sponsored by Genesus Inc.
Betagro is recognized as a Global Mega Producer for 2019.
Betagro Group was founded in 1967 under the name of Betagro Company Limited to produce and distribute animal feed. The company started its business with its first feed mill in Pra Pradaeng, Samut Prakan Province.
The Group has grown substantially ever since first, by establishing a livestock production facility in Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima Province, and then expanding further into the integrated agricultural sector with a complete production base in Lop Buri Province, which includes everything from manufacture and livestock farming to animal breeding, from producing pigs, broilers, layer chickens and breeders to manufacturing and distributing animal health products.
Betagro works in collaborations with local farmers in price guarantee and contract farming schemes. These are fully compliant with internationally recognized quality standards required for effective selection, animal husbandry and advanced farm management under the prudent supervision of veterinarians and animal scientists. With a nationwide network of feed production facilities, the Group’s comprehensive animal feed business meets the different needs of farmers and its subsidiaries.
The pork production segment consists of 120,000 sows, Thailand’s 2nd largest swine producer with plans to expand. The company focuses on producing premium quality food products for export and domestic consumption. In 2017 the Thailand-based agribusiness announced it will phase out crates both in gestation and lactation within 10 years. In the press release, Betagro said the main reason for its move is to enhance ‘quality of life’, calling the development ‘an unprecedented commitment in Asia Pacific’. The company hopes that in 10 years, the measure will apply to 250,000 sows.
In addition to its fully integrated agro-industrial and food business, Betagro has expanded actively into other related industries to Complement its core business:
- Wholesale Food Business
- Retail Food Business
- Betagro Science Center
- Property Development
