Royal Canin’s Gimje Factory Functioning as an Asian Hub

 

Global pet food(nourishing food for companion animals) company Royal Canin has been completed at Gimje in Jeonbuk, to be expected to assume the function of an Asian hub.

 

Royal Canin, which held its completion ceremony in Gimje Horizon General Industrial Complex on September 10, had been already established by veterinarian Jean Cathary at Montpellier in France in 1968 in order to manufacture functional feed for companian animals. This company is the producer of customized nourishing premium pet food for companian dogs andd companion cats, which has established 14 factories in about 90 counturies in the world.

 

Since Royal Canin Korea concluded its investment agreement with Gimje city in Jeollabuk-do in September 2014, it has invested about more than 80 billion to complete its Gimje factory this time. It is projected that completing this Gimje factory will provide oppotunities for developing related industries in Jeollabuk-go based on bioagricultural industry to be developed in connection with rice and chicken meat processing industries as the raw materials of pet food.

 

In addition, Gimje is near Iksan, which has constructed Foodpolis(Korea National Food Cluster) to prepare traffic proximity, raw material supply easiness, and the optimun conditions of pet food industry in connection with related industries.

 

This Gimje factory plans to produce functional pet food, of which more than 80% will be exported to foreign counturies including Japan, Hongkong, and Thailand, and further makes its additional investment plans to be predicted to contribute greatly to trade balance sector through the increase of export in Jeollabuk-do.

 

On the other hand, in collaboration with veterinarians, veterinarian professional groups, and veterinary colleges all over the world, this company could have grown into a global pet care nutrition company for the last 50 years.
