A company branded Signatures of Asia has agreed to buy some 2,000 tons of organic milled rice for 2019-2020 from eleven communities in Preah Vihear province, according to local media report.
The agreement was signed between representatives of the communities and the firm's General Manager Mr. Chan Pich in Preah Vihear province recently.
Mr. Chan Pich underlined that buying rice for export does not only contribute to promoting Cambodia's agricultural sector, but also improves people's living condition.
This is the fourth time of its kind that the company has bought rice from the province since 2016, he added.
Besides the milled rice purchase, as underlined by Mr. Chan Pich, the company also helps to buy other agricultural products including pepper, sesame, soybeans, green beans and beyond from farmers of other provinces.
