In Vietnam, the trading and distribution network were built up over 20 years, spanning across the entire country, carrying all the major fertilizer products including Muriate of Potash, Urea, Di-Ammonium Phosphate, and Ammonium Sulphate.

In recent years, we have also extended the same model into Cambodia. Laos will also be a foray project in the near future.

Besides trading and distribution, the co-operation with local distributors extends to field extension services like agronomy consultancy/advisory, education/promotional workshops and seminars and field trials. Such activities are also conducted in Malaysia for our NPK products.

Besides Vietnam, fertilizer trading also extends into South Pacific and other parts of Asia.
