From a poultry feed store to becoming into the best performing Initial Public Offering (IPO ) in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), Calata Corporation surely made its mark. With the management and supervision of the 31-year old, Joseph Calata, Calata Corporation now expands its operation to farming.

In the late 2011, San Miguel Corporation's Magnolia and Monterey agreed a partnership with the Calata Corporation for its farming operations. The company is well aware of how to go with the said operation, which is how they broke it down to four stages for the poultry operations and three for the hogs'.

The poultry stages will start by breeding the chickens that would lay eggs and as soon as they do, the eggs would be transferred to the hatchery. The chicks would then be sent for the broiler growing operation where they are bred until they are old enough to be dressed and sold to the consumers. As for the three stages for hog operations, they will begin by breeding the sows to produce piglets. When the piglets are born, they would be sent to the hog growing farm until they are old enough to proceed with the processing of their meat.

To start with the operation, the companies invested capital for 21 buildings for the poultry operations; six for the breeder farm where they aim to produce 9.36M eggs per year and 15 buildings for the broiler growing operations for 3.8M chickens per year. They also invested for another eight buildings for the breeder farm of 1,100 sows and 26,000 piglets per year and three buildings for the hog growing operation of 10,000 hogs per year.

Calata did not only sign a long-term partnership for San Miguel Corp.'s Magnolia and Monterey, but also for the latter's B-Meg which is the country's top feeds brand. He also collaborated with the world's top brand for crop protection which is Syngenta and Monsato, the world's top seed company. Bayer, Jardine, Dupont and Sinochem also signed partnership with Calata Corporation for their agro-chemical products.

Joseph Calata is now labeled as the biggest combined distributor of
agro-chemicals, feeds, fertilizers, veterinary medicines and other agricultural products in the Philippines because of these recent partnerships.
