Group provides free medical check-ups and medicine for farmers in northern Ninh Binh province.
The Loc Troi Group organized medical examinations and provided free medicine to 700 farmers in Binh Minh town, Kim Son district, in northern Ninh Binh province on March 3.
Under its social security policy, the Northern Loc Troi JSC, a subsidiary of the Loc Troi Group, and the An Giang Farmer Healthcare Fund cooperated with the Binh Minh Company Limited and the Ninh Binh General Hospital to arrange the medical examinations and free medicine.
Ms. Doan Thi Minh, one of the first workers at Binh Minh farm (now the Binh Minh Company Limited) said she was excited to be invited to undergo an examination. “Thanks to the examination, I know I am suffering from rheumatism and have been advised on how to treat the ailment.”
Mr. Tran Van Tien, Deputy Chairman of the Binh Minh Town People’s Committee, said he appreciated the healthcare program provided by the Loc Troi Group and its cooperation with Binh Minh. “The program helps poor farmers get a job and a stable income,” he said.
With the mission “Together with Farmers for Sustainable Development” and the motto “Farmers are Shareholders of the Enterprise”, in 2004 the An Giang Farmer Healthcare Fund was established by the An Giang Plant Protection JSC, the precursor of the Loc Troi Group, to carry out activities in social security and healthcare for farmers. As at 2016, 510,817 people had received health examinations and been provided free medicine by the fund.
After 13 years of sustainable development in 13 provinces in the Mekong Delta, the Loc Troi Group officially expanded activities in 2016 to the northern region, with Northern Loc Troi, and selected Ninh Binh province as the destination for the expansion of production, especially safe rice production.
In January, Northern Loc Troi and the Kim Son District People’s Committee signed a cooperative agreement in the field of agriculture. This is an important milestone for both the company and the district in improving the efficiency of agricultural production and the lives of farmers.
With the agreement, the Northern Loc Troi JSC will build an agriculture and rural development strategy in the model of an agricultural production value chain, applying advanced technology.
The Loc Troi Group manufactures and distributes seeds and plant protection chemicals, produces and processes rice for export, provides packaging paper, and engages in the tourism business in Vietnam. It offers products to the agriculture industry through its distribution networks.
The company exports its products internationally. Loc Troi Group was formerly known as the An Giang Plant Protection JSC and changed its name to Loc Troi Group in August 2015. The company was founded in 1993 and is based in Long Xuyen city in the Mekong Delta’s An Giang province.
