Pig breeder Sygen International has landed a contract to supply livestock to a group of US food producers, which is expected to benefit its North American operations.

Sygen’s subsidiary, PIC North America, signed the deal with Triumph Foods, one of the largest producer groups in the US, consisting of 25 producer members.

The future looks much brighter for Sygen with the new deal under its belt along with a drop in feed prices. This is compared to June this year when the company issued a profits warning blaming animal feed price rises.

John Adams, Sygen’s finance director says that Sygen breeds: “economically advantageous pigs” which grow faster despite eating less, according to The Telegraph today.
