AMVC, the ninth largest pork producer in the United States, and Bretanha, the leading swine breeding company in Brazil, have formed a strategic partnership called Bretanha – AMVC Management Services.
This new venture combines AMVC’s knowledge and experience in swine management with Bretanha’s expertise in husbandry and breeding to create a comprehensive swine management company focused on innovation and efficiency for Brazilian pork producers.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bretanha to bring proven management strategies to the Brazilian pork market,” said Steve Schmitz, veterinarian and managing partner at AMVC. “For 30 years, AMVC has been raising pigs professionally, providing producers with effective solutions to improve operations and overall animal welfare. As we expand into a new market, we are proud to partner with a company equally committed to providing long-term value to pork producers and the pork industry.
The companies plan to share resources and leverage each other’s strengths to provide Brazilian pork producers with a progressive systems approach to pork production and innovative reproductive technologies.
“Bretanha’s vision is to be a leader in swine reproduction by creating innovative management strategies to improve reproductive performance in pigs,” said Pedro Ivo de Quadros Filho, owner of Bretanha. “This joint venture supports our goal of continuous growth and improvement of Brazilian pig farms and provides opportunities to increase our presence in our key markets.”
