Information Sharing Session

Khmer Cold Chain hosted its first information-sharing event about modern temperature-controlled logistics in Cambodia on 24th May, 2023.  

One of the highlights of the event was the enlightening sanitary and phytosanitary awareness session presented by the esteemed Dr. Ker Monthivuth, Director for the Departement of Plant Protection, Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF). His expertise and guidance proved invaluable in equipping our attendees with crucial insights into the essential practices and standards required to maintain the quality and safety of agricultural products.

Our collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries exemplifies our commitment to creating a platform for growth and advancement within the agricultural industry.

Our centralized cross-docking facility is a game-changer for the industry in Cambodia. By leveraging this new logistics infrastructure in Cambodia, Agricultural cooperatives (ACs) and small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs) will significantly boost their access to new markets, contributing to the overall growth and development of the agricultural ecosystem in our region.

We would like to thank the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries, Cambodia Logistics Association (CLA) and Emerging Markets Consulting (EMC) for their invaluable contribution. We would also like to extend our appreciation to all the attendees and collaborators who made this event a resounding success.

Let’s continue to work hand in hand, sharing knowledge, fostering innovation, and creating pathways to success for all stakeholders in the agricultural industry.
