On May 13, 2022, the groundbreaking ceremony of the project "The Complex of Agricultural High-Technology DHN Gia Lai" took place in Ia Le Commune, Chu Puh District, Gia Lai Province.
"The Complex of Agricultural High-Technology DHN Gia Lai" is in Ia Le Commune, Chu Puh District, with a total investment capital of about VND1,030 billion. The project is expected to have a land use area of about 100 hectares, including farm of 2,500 pigs, selected and imported directly from the Netherlands, pigs slaughter house, organic fertilizer factory, operation and support service area, organic farming area and green land, land for traffic and technical infrastructure, gathering area, purchasing area, preserve and pack fruits according to high quality export standards. Phase 1: The DHN Gia Lai hi-tech application breeding area has a total land area of 50 hectares, a capacity of 2,500 calves and grandparents and 25,000 gilts.
This is the fourth project in the DHN High-tech Agricultural Complex in Vietnam of two corporations, specializing in the production of high-quality agricultural products in a closed chain including: Selection and Production of Swine & Poultry Genetics; Automatic Slaughter Plant; produce animal feed in the direction of organic; organic fertilizer production and trade in livestock products.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Phung Duc Tien highly appreciated the efforts of Hung Nhon Group and De Heus Group in joint venture development cooperation, investment in construction of a series of high-tech genetics farms to provide high-quality genetics for the Central Highlands, Southeast and South Central Coast regions, in line with the development strategy of Vietnam's livestock industry in particular and Vietnamese agriculture in general.
According to Chairman of Gia Lai Provincial People's Committee Vo Ngoc Thanh, Gia Lai's development strategy is to gradually shift from small and scattered livestock production to concentrated, industrial scale, high-tech application, organized closed production according to the value chain, forming a disease-free feeding area. Attracting large enterprises to invest in the livestock sector with 106 livestock projects applying high technology, total investment capital of over VND15,000 billion.
The complex is expected to apply 4.0 technology throughout the breeding process, helping to control livestock quality, optimize livestock performance, reduce product costs and achieve high economic efficiency. Using a grid-connected solar power system, using 30 percent of clean electricity, reducing CO2 emissions by a large amount compared to using traditional power sources. Applying environmentally friendly and energy-saving measures in animal husbandry, organic farming...
Mr. Koen De Heus, CEO Royal De Heus, said: “The Complex of Agricultural High-Technology DHN Gia Lai was born to provide and improve the quality of genetics for Vietnamese livestock farms. Not only that, the complex also creates high-quality products for the chain system and towards high-tech and modern agricultural production, in line with the policy of the Vietnamese Government.”
Also on May 14, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the Research and Development Program of the Feed Material Area with AGRITERRA, a Dutch NGO, and De Heus Vietnam. Accordingly, the three parties will coordinate with local agencies and social organizations to build raw material production areas for the animal feed industry in the form of cooperatives. Focusing on cooperatives as the center and developing, thereby aiming at sustainable and effective agricultural production values, saving costs for farmers and increasing incomes for Vietnamese farmers.
Under the witness of Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phung Duc Tien, De Heus Group and Hung Nhon Group signed a MoU on a strategic cooperation program between the two groups. Accordingly, the two sides will jointly plan, build and develop projects in the field of animal husbandry and animal feed production. Specifically, from 2022 to 2030, De Heus and Hung Nhon will continue to cooperate to expand and develop a network of large-scale genetics projects of large-scale pig breeds and disease-free areas in five provinces. Highlands region. After completing the project in Gia Lai, it will next be deployed in Dak Nong and Kon Tum. The chain of projects, upon completion, will contribute to shaping the Central Highlands into a center for supplying piglets and developing leading hi-tech breeding models in Southeast Asia and Asia.
The goal for the genetics project of De Heus and Hung Nhon Group by 2030 will be: capacity of about 10,000 GGPs, GPs (equivalent to 80,000 gilts per year), pig herd capacity about 200,000 sows and about six million meat pigs. Total revenue is expected to be about US$2 billion per year. With the field of chicken raising, De Heus and Hung Nhon built the Bel Ga breeding area in Tay Ninh. The Bel Ga project includes: two broiler chicken farms with a capacity of 25 million eggs/year, 250 safe broiler farms with a capacity of 25 million broiler chickens/year, and a complex of production plants and factories. processing high quality agricultural products in a closed chain.
