The Embassy of Denmark on September 5 hosted the signing of a Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) between six leading Danish companies, namely SKIOLD A/S, Munters A/S, Tornordic A/S, Haarslev A/S, DanBred P/S, Vilomix A/S, and Tan Long Group to formalize their agreements to adopt advanced Danish technologies on Tan Long’s projects.
Being one of Vietnam’s leading traders in food and agricultural commodities, Tan Long Group is expanding its pork-and-rice production with ongoing projects in both Vietnam and Myanmar. The six Danish partners are well-known companies for turn- key solutions within pig farm equipment, grain handling, feed mill plant, genetics, feed nutrition, slaughterhouses and meat bone mill.
Under the signed SPA, SKIOLD will be in a deal worth many million euros of consulting, designing, and supplying advanced solutions and equipment for a pig farm and paddy rice silos for a storage plan. As close partners of SKIOLD, Munters supplies ventilation solutions for all pig farm projects of Tan Long Group. And DanBred and Vilomix are invited to provide the best breeding genetic and high-quality feed and nutrition supplements for pig farm projects in Myanmar and Vietnam. Finally, Tornordic and its sub-contractor Haarslev will be the suppliers for Tan Long Group’ s slaughter house plant, meat processing plant and meat bone mill factory.
“Denmark and Vietnam have a long history of cooperation in food and agriculture, especially in the fields of seed production, animal husbandry, fisheries, water, environment and energy. Developing sustainable food value chains, enhance food standards and food safety have always been at the center of our mutual cooperation,” said Danish Ambassador-Designate Mr. Kim Højlund Christensen
“The Embassy is very pleased to assist Vietnam in unleashing its agri-food sector’s great potentials by facilitating Vietnam-Denmark cooperation like this partnership. I hope both sides will be able to strengthen the cooperation further by signing the contracts in Hanoi today,” he added.
“We are delighted and honored to become an important strategic partner of Tan Long Group, and we are excited to be main part of the largest paddy/ rice project of 120,000 tons with possibility of expanding to 240,000 tons in Vietnam. Our advanced technologies and extensive knowhow will increase efficiency in the logistic chain, lower waste and increase the quality of the delicious rice produced in Vietnam to highest standard. In association with Tan Long Group, we hope to benefit Vietnam’s porcine husbandry with the latest know-how and philosophies from Denmark for efficient pig farming and strengthen the value chain from Feed-Farm-Food (3F=BAF) to secure high food safety and full traceability." said Mr. Lasse Viegand Hansen, CEO of SKIOLD A/S.
