Cambodia is experimenting water solubilisation products by Club Eco Water for possible supply in the country’s market.
The progress of the experiment was discussed on July 27 in a meeting between H.E. Veng Sakhon, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and Mr. SHIMADA Satoshi, CEO of Club Eco Water at the ministry.
According to Mr. SHIMADA Satoshi, his company through a partnership with Cambodia’s local company conducted the scientific experiment with water and some vegetables and fruits in Cambodia.
Though they are waiting for a final confirmation of the effectiveness and safety of products from a lab in Japan, the experiment went well and the initial result was very positive.
The products blended with water could boost ions and other nutrients to support the growth of fruits and vegetables and reduce side effect of chemical fertiliser and pesticide, he explained.
When the products’ effectiveness and safety was confirmed, the CEO hoped to expand the scope of this technology across Cambodia so that Cambodian people and especially children can have access to safe fruits and vegetables.
H.E. Veng Sakhon thanked Mr. SHIMADA Satoshi for targeting Cambodian market, especially the current situation wherein the price of fertiliser is rising.
Before promoting the products widely in Cambodia, he encouraged the company to wait for the confirmation from the lab on the effectiveness and safety of the products.
He also asked Mr. SHIMADA Satoshi to establish a factory for the products in Cambodia if the lab result was positive.
