HISTORY

2007

Market Select ApS was established in Silkerborg on 7 December 2007.

In connection with Agromek in Herning, eight Mexicans were invited as guests to visit the fair and take a closer look at Danish-produced equipment and inventory for pig production. Helle Fuglevig participated on behalf of a couple of Danish producers of equipment in October 2007 in the annual pig congress in Mexico and came in contact with the group of Mexican pig farmers from Capitiro. This group was about to establish a cooperative, and became acquainted with the Danish products and interested in looking more closely at the possibility of purchasing Danish inventory for their upcoming project. Subsequently, the group was invited to Agromek in Denmark, and they had some enjoyable and very input-rich days around the country. Market Select coordinated the ten days’ visit.

The World Pork Expo is the world’s largest trade show in the pig sector and attracts over 30,000 pig producers, exhibitors and other visitors from across the United States and large parts of the world.
