With warm welcoming and open sharing from board of management of BIM Salt, the delegates have chances to take a look on whole salt manufacturing and processing, from the harvest process to finish refined salt with high quality. Through this factory visiting tour, they have closer look and get more experience on the productivity, efficiency and knowledge of salt manufacturing and processing, which is very useful for their planning of salt factory construction in Myanmar in the future. In addition to, they also get more helpful information on BIM Group, the total capacity of BIM Salt factory and the Quán Thẻ Salt Farm Project.
“Quán Thẻ Salt Farm Project is the largest salt farm in Southeast Asia with area of 2,500 ha and estimated capacity of 330,000 tons of raw salt every year. The investment capital of this project is more than 58 million US dollars and has been operated from 2009. This is expected to become the largest of raw salt supply in Vietnam. Our factory have constructed and operated from 2010 with more than 200,000 tons of refined salt produced every year and total investment capital is 13.5 million US dollars”, Mr. The Nghia, Vice Director of BIM salt factory said.
After the factory visiting tour, Mr. U Hnin Oo said that “We have got helpful information and experience through this visiting tour. I would like to express my gratitude to VEAS, the organizer of Aqua Fisheries Exhibition has created this chance and arranged this visiting tour. I also say thank you to Ninh Thuan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development for all advantages and supports they have provided to us. We are surprised with the development of Ninh Thuan province today. It is quite different from information I researched from Internet. Thanks BIM Salt Manufacturing & Processing JSC with their warm welcome and all careful preparation for our visiting tour today. From their sharing, we have more worthy knowledge in salt manufacturing and processing, as we are expecting to manufacture refined salt with similar quality in Myanmar, and we are importing Thailand salt for local consumption.”
The visiting tour has closed successfully and this will be first step for connecting and cooperation between BIM Group and Myanmar Fisheries Federation in the near future. This is also the chance to strengthen the relationship between MFF, the official supporter and VEAS, organizer of Aqua Fisheries Myanmar.
