  • Championing Eco-friendly Practices at Chun-Fa-Cheng Pig Farm

Nestled beneath the Dawu Mountains, the Chun-Fa-Cheng Pig Farm is a testament to Odiva's environmental dedication. At this self-operated facility, every aspect of the Pinpu Black Pig's growth has been considered. From carefully adjusted feed formulas to an idyllic barn environment, Odiva ensures the well-being of its livestock. Moreover, the pigs enjoy fodder sourced from local agricultural by-product and water sourced from Dawu Mountain, purified with advanced RO technology. This not only guarantees the meat's safety and reliability but also highlights the brand's commitment to environmental wellness.

  • Towards an Advanced Green Energy Farm

Odiva's aspirations extend beyond just responsible farming. The brand envisions the establishment of an "Advanced Green Energy Farm," aligning its practices with global sustainable goals. Such a facility would not only produce premium pork but also contribute significantly to reducing the agricultural sector's carbon footprint.

  • Transparency and Tech: A Match for Sustainability
Incorporating technology into its operations, Odiva introduces a layer of transparency unheard of in the pork industry. Each pig is tagged with a microchip, monitoring its health, weight, and feeding habits continuously. This proactive approach ensures early interventions and overall well-being.

Moreover, Odiva's dedication to transparency shines through its product traceability. With QR codes on product packaging, consumers can trace the journey of their pork right from birth to their plate, promoting conscious consumption.

  • The Future of Farming

As Odiva Pork makes its debut in the Philippines, its message is clear: quality and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. Lee Jung Chun, Owner of Odiva Pork, commented on the brand's Philippine launch, stating that Odiva Pork represents a harmonious blend of Taiwan's culinary heritage and an unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability.

But it is not merely the breed that sets Odiva apart, it is the company’s dedication to marrying tradition with innovation in every facet of production. For over a decade, the company has immersed itself in a rigorous process of selective breeding.

As the global community moves towards sustainable food production, Odiva Pork emerges as a beacon, illustrating that with dedication, innovation, and respect for the environment, the future of farming can indeed be green.
