History

About Kirirom Food Production

Kirirom Food Production is a Khmer-owned business based in Cambodia’s mango heartland, the Kirirom region. After getting the business registration license from the Cambodian Ministry of Commerce in 2013, the factory was built and started the operation in October 2014.
We are first and foremost mango farmers. At Kirirom, we believe all parts of the mango can be used productively across all seasons. We discovered some of the difficulties farmers were facing in the industry. The fertile land produced more mangoes than the market could absorb, and the oversupply led to large amounts of spoilage and unnecessary waste. Prices of mangoes plummeted to near worthlessness during the harvest season which translated into decreased incomes for farmers.
Determined to alleviate the situation, we invested in a dried fruit manufacturing plant. By processing the unsold fresh mangoes, we aim to stabilize farmers’ incomes during harvest season. Today, to reduce waste, we compost all byproducts, like skins and seeds. During our off seasons we also process dried papayas and pineapples in order to take full advantage of our facilities.
Kirirom is now a leading producer of Cambodian mangoes. As we grow, we hope to diversify our line of mango products. We believe that the growth of our business will not only guarantee a consistent income stream for farm owners in the region, but also stimulate the local economy.

Roots

Kirirom Food Production is rooted in our father’s love for growing mango trees, a passion he inherited from his father. In 2002, our father planted a small mango orchard on a parcel of land near Kirirom National Park in southern Cambodia. Today, the farm has grown to 500 ha filled with mango, papaya and jackfruit trees, pineapple plants, and is still expanding.
As the farm grew, we discovered some of the difficulties farmers were facing in the industry. The fertile land produced more mangoes than the market could absorb, and the oversupply led to large amounts of spoilage and unnecessary waste. Prices of mangoes plummeted to near worthlessness during the harvest season, which translated into decreased incomes for farmers.
Determined to alleviate the situation, we invested in a dried fruit manufacturing factory. By processing the unsold fresh mangoes, we aim to stabilize farmers’ incomes during harvest season. In 2013, we broke ground on our 5,000 m2 manufacturing plant and it became operational in October 2014.
Since operations began, our company has become the leading exporter of mangoes and related dried fruit products in Cambodia. Today, in partnership with local farmers, the facility also produces dried pineapple and dried papaya and is continuously expanding into new products.
