Topigs Norsvin will supply Norsvin Landrace and Z-line for production of TN70 sows and Norsvin Duroc as a terminal sire. In this new Supply Agreement Topigs Norsvin will supply boars and semen to Svenska Köttföretagen AB’s multiplier and distribution network, including technical support to the Swedish pig production value chain.</p>
<p dir=”LTR” align=”LEFT”>”This new Supply Agreement gives Topigs Norsvin a unique opportunity to supply the whole Swedish market with our highly competitive maternal offering, the TN70 sow” states Regional Director of Topigs Norsvin, Anders Øfsti. Topigs Norsvin has already a 40% market share in Sweden with the Norsvin Duroc as terminal sire. This new Agreement is a starting point to grow the terminal market share even further.</p>
<p dir=”LTR” align=”LEFT”>”Scandinavia and Sweden is specifically defined as a core home market for Topigs Norsvin. We believe the negative trend with a long-term decline in the total Swedish pig production is now broken” states Anders Øfsti. “Topigs Norsvin’s global competitive product portfolio, technology and human resources will position our Swedish distributor for significant growth in the years to come”.</p>
<p dir=”LTR” align=”LEFT”>”We have chosen a long-term and highly professional global genetic partner for the future, through this new agreement with Topigs Norsvin” states Hans Agné, CEO of Svenska Köttföretagen. “The Swedish pig industry is in need of products and technology transfer to secure future growth, and we see Topigs Norsvin as the best and perfect partner to help us reach our bold ambitions.”</p>
