New Cold Storage Warehouse Equipped by Omnivent Opens in Myanmar
A new cold storage warehouse for potatoes has officially opened by the Heho Potato Company in Myanmar, writes Agroberichten Buiteland.
This is the third professional cold storage facility for potatoes in Myanmar and the first commercial warehouse which compasses substantial storage capacities and is equipped with modern technology from Omnivent.
This cold storage can store up to 1,000 tons and the main purpose is to provide good quality potatoes for consumers and potato seeds for farmers and to share knowledge about good storage systems and technical know-how to keep good quality seed preserved for next growing seasons.
The opening event was attended by many hundreds of interested farmers and many others, including a member of the Union Parliament (Hluttaw) and the agricultural unit of the Netherlands Embassy, Agricultural Assistant Ms. Aye Aye Nwe and the Agricultural Counsellor Mr. Frederik Heijink, who delivered an opening speech.
