SKIOLD A/S, based in Denmark, and Vietnam’s Sao Mai Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on May 21 to build a large modern paddy storage and rice mill plant using advanced international technologies.

SKIOLD will consult, design, and provide complete modern technology solutions and equipment to the Sao Mai Group’s rice mill.

Sao Mai hopes to start the project in October, which includes facilities and solutions for the intake of fresh paddy, and the pre-cleaning, drying, cleaning, storing, and processing of rice, with a capacity of nearly 1.3 million tons of paddy per year.

On an area of 22 ha, Sao Mai will utilize 100 per cent of by-products from the rice milling process (rice bran, broken rice, rice husk) for its subsidiary companies to produce aquatic feed (Sao Mai Super Feed) and provide rice husk for broilers and bio-organic fertilizer sources.

The final rice product lines will supply domestic and international markets, doubling profits in the national agriculture industry.

The plant will be located in the “capital” of raw paddy materials - the Mekong Delta - and contribute to the consumption of all rice sources while creating jobs for many local workers, saving costs, and improving living standard among farmers. These advantages will support the rice mill in ensuring food security and satisfying 12 sustainable production targets.

SKIOLD and Sao Mai will work together in building a strategic vision to expand the market and take the “Made in Sao Mai - Vietnam” rice brand to the world.

Its CEO Mr. Hansen said it is an honor to sign the MoU with the Sao Mai Group. “We look forward to working together to develop this modern paddy rice project,” he added. “Our advanced technologies and extensive know-how will increase efficiency in the logistics chain, reduce waste, and enhance food safety.”

SKIOLD also offers solutions in value chains for farmers to increase efficiency in the logistics chain, exploit markets, and consult food producing businesses on sustainable development. It established a subsidiary in Ho Chi Minh City in 2015, setting the foundation for growth in market share in Asia. It has also provided solutions for Vietnamese groups such as Vinamilk, Hoa Phat Group, CP Vietnam, and TH Truemilk.

SKIOLD A/S is a technology and solutions provider for the agricultural industry. The company’s main activities focus on FEED - animal feed production equipment, SEED & GRAIN - seed and grain handling equipment, and PIG and POULTRY - pig and poultry farm equipment, in Denmark, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.
