Kingdoms’ trade: Cambodian cassava on way to China

Three thousend tonnes of dry cassava chips will be shipped from Phnom Penh Autonomous Port on January 15.

The shipment is part of a 1 million tonne order by China National Food Industry Group, the first ever to China, and is the largest shipment of the product in the port’s history, according to officials.

“Previously, we have shipped very little [dry cassava chips],” Eang Veng Sun, vice general director of PPAP.

“It is the first time we did so on such a big scale.”

Oh Jae Hoon, cargo manager of Pan Continental, the logistics company handling the shipment, said the first shipment will consist of at least four barges, and is expected to arrive in China fifteen days later. 

In August 2011, China National Food Industry Group signed a 1 million-tonne import agreement with Cambodian agricultural firm Ly Ye Rubber Company.

At that time, Cai Yong Feng, chairman of the Chinese firm, said cassava is a rapidly expanding industry in Cambodia.
