HCMC – The government of Kon Tum Province on November 29 signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Vietnam’s Hung Nhon Group and the Netherlands’ De Heus on an investment plan to build a hi-tech agricultural complex in the Central Highlands province.
The project, covering an area of over 200 hectares and requiring total capital of US$65 million (or VND1,450 billion), would produce high-quality agricultural products under a closed chain.
The complex will comprise hi-tech livestock and poultry areas, livestock slaughter plants, a main operating area combined with tourist resort services, a hi-tech agricultural farming area, raw material serving areas, a genetics research center and a labor training center.
In particular, once in place, the high productivity pig farm, with a capacity of 2,500 pigs, will provide the market with up to 24,000 pigs. The entire breeding and feeding process of the project will be strictly controlled, contributing to improving livestock production efficiency and creating a source of clean agricultural products for the market toward establishing a disease-free area.
The cooperation will help De Heus and Hung Nhon complete the high-value closed-loop pig production and value chain, bringing healthy, disease-free and productive genetics to Vietnamese farmers.
De Heus and Hung Nhon will continue to cooperate to expand their chain of large-scale pig breeding projects and the epidemic-free zone in all provinces in the Central Highlands region. The two firms have been investing in complex projects in Daklak, Lam Dong, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Dak Nong, Tay Ninh, and the Southeast and Southwest regions.
Hung Nhon is a pioneer in the field of farming and animal husbandry in Vietnam, while De Heus is a global group from the Netherlands, with more than 100 years of experience in producing high-quality animal feed for livestock, poultry and aquatic products.
