HyLife is excited to announce today the purchase of ProVista’s hog farming operations.

ProVista currently ranks as one of Canada’s largest independent hog farming operations with most of its production located in Manitoba. The acquisition consists of 37,000 sows, nursery, and finishing barns supported by 252 employees with a production capacity of approximately one million hogs annually.

ProVista’s farms are located in close proximity to HyLife’s current operations. The geographical proximity of the farms provide strategic synergies, as the newly acquired farms will be added to HyLife’s existing infrastructure. As both companies share similar values, HyLife is excited to welcome the new employees who are highly experienced in raising quality hogs.

“We are confident this sale represents an opportunity for our employees to grow with a global leader in the pork industry, and it fulfills our farming business aspirations,” said ProVista owners, Harold and Arthur Rempel.

“We have a long working relationship with ProVista and look forward to building on all the hard work that they have done,” said Grant Lazaruk, HyLife’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This acquisition enables HyLife to expand our production team and secure hog supply to facilitate future growth.”
