CEDAC expands its food business

CEDAC expands its food business


Is it difficult to distinguish between chemical food and non-chemical food? This difficulty will no longer happen to you after you reach Cambodia Center for Study and Development in Agriculture (CEDAC) shops, because they are special shops which sell only Cambodian natural and non-chemical products.

For sure, you are going to live in healthy life with natural taste of food from CEDAC.

Located at house 10B, Street 205, Sangkat Tomnub Tek, Khan Chamkarmon, next to the east gate of InterContinental, is the thirteenth CEDAC shop which just opened about two months ago.

The shop was designed to be very modern or attractive, and this latest branch is the newest and biggest.

Since the CEDAC shop is a Khmer natural products shop which was designed in the same style as supermarket, it has been attracting many people who are travelling Cambodia.

Morl Channa, 23, a salesperson at the new CEDAC shop, ?said that this shop is no different from others belonging to CEDAC.

Not only are natural vegetables and fruits available, but also various kinds of meats from animals raised with only natural feed.

All goods in the shop are supplied by Cambodian farmers who have joined CEDAC. They have gained knowledge of organic farming from CEDAC, and are now able to sell their products at a higher price after harvesting.

The best sellers at the new CEDAC shop are rice and honey. According to Morl Channa, the shop is providing free delivery service to customers’ homes when they buy 50kg of rice or the total value of their purchase is above 100,000 riels.

In the left corner of the store, you can find many choices of soft drinks which are hardly found in ordinary markets. Those drinks are sourced and created locally.

“Other Cambodian companies can put their goods to sell in our shop after CEDAC staff has approved those products for hygiene and no chemicals,” Morl Channa said.

Yang Sang Koma, president of CEDAC, said the he opened these shops to develop Cambodia’s socioeconomic climate.

“The profits of all CEDAC shops are not much, but what I want is to provide an advantage to my people,” he said.

CEDAC plans to open 200 branches of these shops in total, so that they are in every city and province within the next five years.

Yang San Koma hopes that our people will be healthy, and understand more about the advantages of organic farming.
