Gold Coin China, a subsidiary of Pilmico and Gold Coin Group, completed their new feed mill in Yunnan, China, currently the largest comprehensive feed mill in Yunnan Province.

The project, worth a $23.1 million investment, began in 2022 with a groundbreaking ceremony. The feed mill boasts a capacity of 150,000 MT with near-term plans to expand to 290,000 MT with a future maximum capacity potential of 500,000 MT. Equipped with the latest equipment and technology, Pilmico and Gold Coin group’s Yunnan facility aims to set new standards in feed mill production.

It commenced commercial production in June 2024 and is expected to produce 75,000 MT this year. This feed mill will cater to more species, including swine, poultry, aqua, ruminants, and premix, and reach an even broader customer base.

“The launch of this new facility in Yuxi, Yunnan Province, is a testament to our commitment to expand our presence in key markets through investments in more efficient facilities across the region. For this feed mill specifically, we worked with key stakeholders to embed some of the latest technology and automation equipment to enhance our processes and optimize feed mill efficiency. This mill is the second of its kind in our China-based operation. It will ensure that our customers are provided with the highest quality feed across multiple categories,” said Tristan Aboitiz, Pilmico and Gold Coin Group president and chief executive officer.

The Yunnan feed mill forms part of the Aboitiz Group’s food and agribusiness subsidiary’s strategic moves to strengthen its feed mill capacity in the Asia Pacific, alongside the upcoming 200,000 MT feed mill in Long An, Vietnam.
