Cambodian rice giant enters global rice market


[INNEWS Comprehensive Report] On October 25, Cambodian rice manufacturer Long Grain Co. Ltd. responded to market demand and launched a world-class rice mill for the production and distribution of rice.

The company plans to increase production from 33,000 tons per year to 200,000 tons in 2025, and expand into other areas such as milk rice, rice cakes, grains and oils.

Located in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia, the factory covers an area of 68,809 square meters and highlights the company’s pursuit of excellence and vision for the future. From mill to distribution, innovative technology ensures exceptional quality in every grain.

In addition to its environmental focus, the company also demonstrates its industry leadership by working closely with local growers to implement water conservation measures while promoting biodiversity and improving soil health. In addition, Cambodia has become a major player in the rice industry, which accounts for more than 50% of Cambodia’s agricultural land and has grown significantly over the past 20 years, allowing products to enter major international markets, especially the European market.

In response, the Cambodian government initiated policy reforms to increase rice production and supply, putting the country on the world map. Long Grain, with its advanced plant and operational capabilities, is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth trend and create greater value for its customers and stakeholders.

Sanjay Dvir, CEO of Long Grain Company, said: “Our new factory introduces state-of-the-art automated equipment to meet the growing global demand for rice. We thank the Cambodian government for its support and reaffirm our commitment to strengthen our market presence and maintain Growth momentum.”

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, rice production between 2023 and 2024 will reach 5.209 million tons, and the value is expected to reach US$271.04 billion. Sanjay Dvir further said: “As Cambodia’s rice exports increase, Long Grain will seize the opportunity to become a major player.”

The new plant is a major investment by Long Grain in the global rice market. In doing so, the company not only enhances its position in the global market, but also furthers its commitment to quality, sustainability and community empowerment.
