Trukai Industries Limited is the only rice manufacturing company in PNG that has invested significantly in research and development in the agricultural sector over many years. The company has spent hundreds of millions of kina in conducting research into not just rice development but other agricultural crops as well such as peanuts, sorghum beans, and maize including cattle farming.
Agricultural diversity and self-sufficiency are vital for Papua New Guinea’s future and joint venture farming arrangements, such as those between Trukai and traditional landowners, are positive steps forward.
Trukai believes it has a responsibility to contribute towards the growth of agriculture in Papua New Guinea. We have diversified our interests by establishing an agricultural division that focuses on cattle farming, maize cultivation and local rice farming.
Trukai’s rice development focus, in support of food security, is to work with the people of PNG to grow rice, providing both new wealth and food security for all.
Trukai’s investment in cattle farming is producing exciting results for the future of the PNG Herd Structure.
Erap Development Farm is a mixed farming unit used for research. We share our knowledge on pasture production, legumes to supplement soil fertility, animal nutrition and feeding techniques with the farming community.
