Goodvalley delivered strong performance in tough 2018

Goodvalley mitigates tough external challenges by a strong operational performance and high efficiency in production



  • Revenue was lower by 9 % to DKK 1,473 million driven by lower pig and pork prices
  • Goodvalley realised a solid Adjusted EBITDA of DKK 222 million despite lower pig and pork prices and harsh weather conditions


  • Goodvalley improved efficiency in terms of sold pigs per sow from 30.6 in 2017 to 31.6 in 2018, being among the leading manufactures relative to both the average in EU and North America
  • The whole herd feed conversion ratio was stable at 2.75 kilo feed per kilo pork, resulting from the Group’s ongoing focus on sustainability and efficiency
  • The Group completed a series of stable upgrades enabling higher production capacity and efficiency as well as animal welfare and bio-security improvements


  • Goodvalley expects to generate revenue in the range of DKK 1,400- 1,550 million and an Adjusted EBITDA of DKK 220-280 million driven by continued high production efficiency and higher volumes from finalisation of stable upgrades compared to 2018 level
“While 2018 was marked by challenging weather and tough market conditions, we managed to deliver a strong performance based on high efficiency in the production. We are pleased to present relatively stable revenue of DKK 1,473 million and solid Adjusted EBITDA of DKK 222 million in a historically tough year for the agricultural industry across Europe. Moreover, we made substantial improvements to our business platform, positioning Goodvalley for profitable growth when market conditions normalise” says CEO Tom Axelgaard
