Trukai In­dus­tries Lim­ited

Made in PNG - - PRODUCER PROFILES -

‘We are more than just rice.’ Trukai is the lead­ing sup­plier of rice in PNG and is proud to be the only rice business that man­u­fac­tures its prod­ucts locally.

Trukai is also com­mit­ted to in­creas­ing lo­cal rice pro­duc­tion to feed our peo­ple and over the past 40 years the com­pany has cre­ated sus­tained eco­nomic growth for the coun­try. Trukai em­ploys 900 peo­ple in PNG and sup­ports thou­sands more through fam­ily net­works and the rice in­dus­try sup­ply chain.

Trukai is proudly 33 per cent owned by the peo­ple of PNG through the Pa­cific Bal­anced Fund and its 40,000 lo­cal share­hold­ers.

An­nu­ally, the com­pany con­trib­utes over K180 mil­lion to the PNG econ­omy and it’s far reach­ing cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram has con­trib­uted in ex­cess of K30 mil­lion over the past 10 years to on­go­ing health, ed­u­ca­tion and sport­ing pro­grams.

Ad­di­tional health ben­e­fits for the peo­ple of PNG are gained from Trukai’s rice range, as it is the only rice man­u­fac­tured in PNG to be vi­ta­min en­riched and fully com­ply with gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions.

Trukai is com­mit­ted to help­ing build an in­de­pen­dent, suc­cess­ful and in­clu­sive rice in­dus­try for the ben­e­fit of PNG.

We are cur­rently un­der­tak­ing a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cused on in­creas­ing rice pro­duc­tion in PNG, in­clud­ing seed va­ri­ety test­ing, in­dus­try train­ing and sup­port, seed dis­tri­bu­tion, and mar­ket­ing of fin­ished prod­uct. These projects have also been un­der­taken in con­junc­tion with nu­mer­ous in­de­pen­dent PNG or­gan­i­sa­tions.

As PNG’s lead­ing sup­plier of rice, Trukai is com­mit­ted to in­creas­ing lo­cal rice pro­duc­tion to feed our peo­ple, en­hanc­ing agri­cul­tural pro­duc­tion, im­prov­ing PNG’s food se­cu­rity and in­creas­ing stan­dards of liv­ing for our peo­ple.
