STAFF REPORTER
PRAN to export cassava to NZ

RAN, a food processing and agribusiness company, has bagged its maiden export order for Cassava worth around $ 3 million from New Zealand, says a press release.
“We have secured a contract with Khan‘s 2nd Generation Ltd. The order value is worth around Tk 23 crore,” said Md Mizanur Rahman, chief of export at PRAN.
“It will generate foreign currency for our country,” he added.
Kamruzzaman Kamal, director of marketing at PRAN-RFL Group said cassava would be shipped off to the Southwestern Pacific Ocean country by this month through Chittagong port. “Necessary preparations have already been taken for export,” he further said.
Sylvan Agriculture Ltd, a concern of PRAN, inked a deal with the Auckland-based company recently. As per the deal, Khan‘s 2nd Generation Ltd, a company of Auckland, will take the tuber crop for the next two years. Rasedul Hasan, country business manager (Australia) at PRAN, said “We ensured quality, weight and maximum standard for exporting frozen cassava.”
In the last fiscal year, PRAN produces nearly 5,000 tons cassava. PRAN has targeted to expand cassava cultivation as it has received positive response from the contract farmers.
Importer Mustafezur Khan said Cassava is a popular and nutritious food in New Zealand.  “Earlier, we took Cassava from Fiji. But PRAN’s Cassava quality, taste and color are good. So, we decided to take Cassava from PRAN,” he said.
