Construction of this complex follows a Memorandum of Understanding signed on May 28 in Buon Ma Thuot City, between Dak Lak People’s Committee and Hung Nhon Group and the Netherlands-based De Heus Group.
The US$66 million project will cover 200 ha and be carried out from the third quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2025.
Reportedly, the complex includes an 80ha farm for 2,400 breeding pigs selected and imported from the Netherlands; a 30ha chicken breeding area; and a 15ha plant for pork slaughtering and organic fertiliser production.
Vu Manh Hung, Chairman and General Director of the Hung Nhon Group, said once completed, the complex will become a leading centre of hi-tech application in animal husbandry, creation of chained products, animal feed, organic fertiliser, and commercial livestock products with the best quality in Vietnam, aiming for exports to the Southeast Asian region.
The project uses grid-connected solar power system and breeding process applying technology 4.0 in accordance with Global GAP standards.
It is expected to generate stable jobs for 200-300 local ethnic minority workers.
The project aims to provide safe and disease-free breeding stocks for Central Highland and southern provinces.
Chairman of the Dak Lak People’s Committee Pham Ngoc Nghi said the province has a lot of potential to develop agriculture, especially farming land.
The investment in the DHN hi-tech agricultural park complex is in line with the province’s strategy to develop agricultural economy, he said.
Nghi pledged to create all possible conditions for the Hung Nhon Group and De Hues to soon complete the project.
