Betagro...First Step Towards ExcellenceFounded in 1967 with a registered capital of Baht 10 million, the Betagro Group began as a single entity, Betagro Company Limited, to produce and distribute animal feed. Its headquarters were originally located in Pom Prab, Bangkok, and its first feed mill in Prapadaeng, Samut Prakan province.
From that time, Betagro has grown from strength to strength; beginning with the establishment of its first animal husbandry facility in Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima province, comprising poultry and swine farming, feed mill and hatchery. Success of this venture was soon followed by the company’s expansion into the strategically located and resource rich province of Lop Buri. There, comprehensive production facilities that included feed production, hatchery, poultry and swine raising, fresh and frozen chicken processing, hygienic pork processing, and manufacturing of processed frozen SPF pork products, were soon to position Betagro as a leading conglomerate in the agro-industry.
To complete the supply chain of poultry and swine integration, and to support its core competencies in the agro-industry, Betagro soon after established a number of specialised companies. These businesses are now engaged in production, husbandary and genetic development in swine, broilers and layers, plus establishment of breeder farms and manufacture and distribution of veterinary medicines. The company has also formed collaborative arrangements with farmers to provide contract farming for broilers and layers and to include fattening swine, production and distribution of hygienic and fresh pork, chicken, eggs, as well as processed foods, for distribution to both domestic and international markets.
Today, the Betagro Group is recognised as being at the forefront of Thailand’s agro-industry and food business, engaged in animal feed production, livestock, and animal health products, and most importantly, high-quality, safe food products. Distributed to local and overseas markets, these leading, branded products respond to the diverse needs of consumers across the globe, reflecting Betagro’s guiding principle: "Let’s Make Life Better."
