KAMPONG SPEU PROVINCE, Cambodia, Oct 24, 2023 - (NewMediaWire) - Long Grain Co. Ltd ("Long Grain" or the "Company") is a specialty rice production and distribution enterprise positioned to make a significant impact in the global rice market, having recently unveiled its world-class milling facility that reimagines rice production and distribution. The Company expects the facility to generate an exponential rise from 33,000 tons production per year to 200,000 tons by 2025, followed by expansion into other verticals such as rice milk, rice cakes, grain spirit and rice oil.
Strategically located in the Kampong Speu Province of Cambodia, the expansive 68,809 sq meter mill stands testament to the Company's commitment to excellence and its vision for the future. From milling to distribution, innovative technology ensures that each grain epitomizes quality. Moreover, embracing environmental resilience, Long Grain works closely with local growers practicing water preservation, biodiversity enhancement and soil health improvement, demonstrating its position as an emerging industry leader.
Cambodia, over the years, has emerged as a major player in the rice industry. The country's rice sector accounts for over 70% of its agricultural cropped areas and contributes about 50% to the nation's agricultural output. Furthermore, the Cambodian rice market has experienced substantial growth over the past two decades, with surplus production finding its way to major international markets, primarily Europe. The Government of Cambodia, recognizing this upward trajectory, has put forth policy reforms to augment rice production and place Cambodian rice prominently on the global map. With its advanced facility and operational capabilities, Long Grain is ideally positioned to capitalize on this surge and deliver unparalleled value to its customers and stakeholders.
Sanjay Dvir, CEO of Long Grain, states, “Our new facility is the answer to the burgeoning global rice demand, leveraging automation and state-of-the-art design. As we thank the supportive Cambodian government, we reiterate our commitment to further enhance our market presence and sustain growth momentum for years to come.”
The global rice appetite is growing exponentially. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates a leap to 520.9 million tons of production in 2023/24, translating to a value of $271.04 billion by 2028. And as Cambodia’s rice exports surge, Long Grain is ideally positioned to be an important player, further propelled by the Government of Cambodia’s policy on the Promotion of Paddy Production and Rice Export.
“At its core, Long Grain is a pledge to quality, sustainability, and community enrichment,” concludes Dvir.
