Pilmico started its first commercial swine farm in 1998 with 1,500 pigs flown from the United States. As business grew, Pilmico ventured into other areas in the agribusiness sector, including poultry, aquaculture, and most recently, pet food.
Twenty-four years later, it has become a total solutions provider for farmers—from feeds to specialty nutrition to world-class facilities.
Norie Bermudez, Agribusiness Country Director - PH of Pilmico & Gold Coin Group, shares her excitement as Pilmico celebrates its anniversary: “Throughout the years, Pilmico became a total solutions provider because we’re always looking for innovations and ways to better serve our partners and the agribusiness industry. We’re glad about all that we have achieved for the past 24 years, and we’re looking forward to several years to come as we strive to improve in ways we can to provide the best for our partners,” she said.

Pilmico goes beyond establishing best-in-class quality farms and providing animals with nutritional feeds. It has also been providing solutions to pressing issues in the agribusiness industry, most evidently seen in the recent spread of African Swine Fever (ASF) in the country.
As an effort to improve the hogs’ health and to help control the spread of ASF, Pilmico reformulated its premium hogs feed Elite XP to increase the reproduction rate of hogs and ensure they grow healthy. Additionally, Pilmico built a new Breeder and Nursery Farm in Tarlac with heightened biosecurity measures and modern technology to augment the local pork supply.
Pimlico is doing all this and more to help fulfill its mission to feed humanity.

It also provides additional technical assistance and training to ensure the growth of the farmers’ businesses.
As 24 years have passed since its humble beginnings, Pilmico looks forward to several more years to come, continuously growing with the passion to further strengthen its position as a total solutions provider for farmers. (SPONSORED CONTENT)
