China's WH Group is the world's largest pork producer. It engages in production and distribution of raw pork and meat products, as well as pig farming. Its production bases in China, the U.S. and Europe provide meat to the Chinese market, the world's largest pork consumer.
Its origins can be traced back to a meat processing plant built in Henan province in April 1969. The success of its first brand sausages, released in February 1992, helped the company to expand its business. In the same year, the company with investors from six countries founded Shuanghui International, the predecessor of WH Group.
It built a sales office in Japan in 2011 and changed to its current name in January 2014. It has meat processing plants in 13 provinces in China, and four plants are under construction. It processes 4 million tons of pork each year.
It has expanded its international network. In September 2013, the company acquired Smithfield Foods, the largest pork processing company in the U.S., for $7.1 billion. In Asia, its subsidiary Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development supplies meat to Japan, Singapore and the Philippines, as well as China.
