De Heus is currently the biggest Dutch agri-investor in Myanmar with
already two operational animal feed mills in Yangon and
Mandalay. Besides the production of feed, De Heus Myanmar is also most
important in realizing capacity-building programs for Livestock and
Agricultural sectors, such as poultry, pigs and corn.
The DaNa Facility, a UK government Department for International Development (DFID) funded programme, and De Heus Myanmar, an international animal feed business, have announced a joint investment of over US$3.2 million in a project focused on increasing the income and productivity of pig farmers across Myanmar.
They said it would be the largest single business investment in Kayah State. The De Heus project will work to address significant issues facing domestic pork production in Myanmar, including problems related to the quality of feed, breeding stock, veterinary services, bio-security issues and the genetics of domestic pigs, which negatively affect pig producers and consumers.
De Heus will also establish demonstration farms in Kachin, Chin, Naypyitaw, Shan, Yangon, Bago, Mandalay, Pyay, Pathein and Kayah to provide training for around 10,000 farmers to improve their pig-rearing and management practices.
Alongside this work, De Heus
Royal De Heus Group is an international organization with a leading position in the animal feed industry. De Heus was founded in 1911 and has its roots in the Netherlands. After more than a 100 years the company is still owned and managed by the De Heus family.
De Heus is in the process of establishing their first production facility in Myanmar. Prior to the grand opening they will already be in need of talented and ambitious people to join their company. If you think you are the right person to join the team, do not hesitate to apply!
The main result area and tasks related to all aspects of the Myanmar PIGs project are described below, although the list is non-exhaustive. Other ad hoc tasks will be requested from time to time.
