The company, which became a part of the FirstFarms Group in 2017, was established by a group of Danish investors with worldwide know how within pig production together with an innovative Hungarian team. FirstFarms Hungary Kft. exists today as a stable and economically sound company.
In our production we are using Danish Genetics and are proud to be Danish Genetics partner. It means that our pig production consists of both world class genetic expertise and highly professional pig breeding. The aim of genetic selection is to optimise the production and our profit, by breeding pigs known for its high meat percentage and high quality.
Our production is awarded High Quality Pork Trademark, which is a certification for pork with higher quality, provided by a comprehensive product certification system. This trademark guarantees that the pork comes from a reliable source, that it can be traced from the piglet to the dinner table, and that it is produced under regular, strict and continuous inspection.
As a founding member of the Hungarian benchmarking programme linked to a newly developed monitoring system within pig production, called STEWARD, the group shares all experiences of effectiveness.
