Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phung Duc Tien expressed his excitement and pride in Hung Nhon’s status as one of the agricultural enterprises capable of partnering with a leading global agricultural corporation like De Heus. “The core value of this event lies not only in the restructuring and reshaping of Tay Ninh’s livestock sector but also in setting an example of developing the livestock sector towards industrialization and modernization as per the Prime Minister’s approved strategy,” the Deputy Minister emphasized.

At the event, Mr. Nguyen Thanh Ngoc, Chairman of the Tay Ninh Provincial People’s Committee, also reiterated that the Provincial People’s Committee organized a conference to announce the Prime Minister’s Decision approving the provincial planning for Tay Ninh for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision till 2050. Achieving this goal would certainly require contributions from enterprises, especially those with investment projects aligning with Tay Ninh’s seven breakthrough development areas. The DHN Tay Ninh High-Tech Agricultural Complex by De Heus and Hung Nhon, with its many outstanding features, is one of the projects that the provincial leadership is particularly interested in and strongly supports.

Regarding the decision to select Tay Ninh as a key investment locality, Mr. Gabor Fluit, Global CEO of De Heus, evaluated Tay Ninh as having many potentials and strengths in attracting FDI, especially in the field of high-tech agriculture. He also elaborated on the seven key projects in phase 2 of the DHN Tay Ninh project, including a breeding farm system, an export poultry farm, and a food processing plant. These are crucial projects within the De Heus-Hung Nhon value chain.

Additionally, at the event, representatives from the Provincial People’s Committee of Tay Ninh, Hung Nhon, and ORVIA Vietnam signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation. The project is divided into two phases. Specifically, phase 1 (2025-2027) will construct a high-tech, modern hatchery covering about 2 hectares, supplying the market with 1.2 million breeding ducks per year. It will also build an organic fertilizer plant certified by USDA/EU standards, covering about 20-30 hectares, producing and supplying approximately 120,000-150,000 tons of organic and microbial fertilizers to the market. Phase 2 (2027-2030) will invest in high-tech livestock farms on a total area of 80 hectares, providing about 4 million breeding ducks and 18 million meat ducks annually for the domestic market and export to international markets. The total investment for the entire project is VND2,000 billion.
