Oxfordshire company to supply pigs to Vietnam

PIG Improvement Company, of Oxfordshire, is working on a £1.5m project to raise top-quality swine for sale in Vietnam. The countrys passion for pork-stuffed spring rolls is putting a strain on the countrys pig supplies.

The company will fly 665 animals to Hanoi in a customised cargo plane with automated drinking water systems and handlers.
