Cargill to expand investment in Vietnam

Posted by | November 26, 2015 |

Talking to the press in Ho Chi Minh City on November 18, the US group’s Chairman David McLennan said plans for new factories demonstrate the group’s commitment to the country.

Cargill is constructing its 12th animal feed plant in Vietnam with a total investment capital of 30 million USD in the southern province of Binh Duong. The factory, with a capacity of 260,000 tonnes a year, is expected to go into operation in the first quarter of 2017.

The group has invested 180 million USD to develop its animal feed mills system with a total capacity of 1.3 million tonnes a year in the country since 1995.

Additionally, the groups signed a 10 million USD deal with the Sai Gon International Terminals Vietnam (SITV) to build warehouse in Phu My.

Besides expanding its investment in Vietnam, Cargill pledges to support farming households and small farms by providing them with training in animal breeding, thus preparing them for upcoming free trade agreements to which Vietnam is a member, including the Trans-Pacific-Partnership (TPP) agreement.
