Pilmico continues to venture into fast-growing segments such as pet food and aquaculture across the Asian regions.

Pilmico and Gold Coin Group (Pilmico) is on track to becoming one of the leading integrated food and agribusiness companies in Asia as it lays out its transformative expansion plans here and abroad.

Part of this expansion involves acquisitions of facilities in the Philippines and across the entire Asian region spanning China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Currently, Pilmico is comprised of four divisions, namely Flour, Feeds, Farms, and Trading, while Gold Coin is a pioneer in animal nutrition and the manufacturing of scientifically-balanced animal feed in Asia.

Moving forward, Pilmico plans to increase its presence in fast-growing market segments like aquaculture, pet food, and specialty nutrition, and grow its business-to-consumer brands such as The Good Meat, Maxime, Woofy, and Tommy.

A new breeder and nursery farm designed to augment swine production will be operational this year. Along with this is the continued expansion of the company’s retail meat brand, The Good Meat, as it targets to distribute its products to 330 supermarket concessionaires by the end of 2022.

The Good Meat currently supplies a wide variety of fresh cuts, marinated pork, and ready-to-cook products in over 250 supermarkets.

In addition to supermarket concessionaires, it also aims to open at least eight brick-and-mortar stores in Metro Manila, including the newly opened branch in Libis, Quezon City.
