Production Process

Getting input material
Step 1

Getting input material

Raw materials are purchased from the Mekong Delta region under the appropriate authorities’ control. Quality control samples are collected from KCS staff before purchasing. Only satisfactory batches of material are purchased. Materials are transported to the factory by specialized boats. Raw materials are delivered into the factory via a conveyor system or material compartment.

At the factory, raw materials are checked against the Company's material requirements. Only batch of raw materials meeting the criteria stated in the standard can be put into production.

Receiving packaging materials
Step 2

Receiving packaging materials

Receive PE/PA/PP/OPP packaging, carton,…

The received packagings are examined and recorded into the packaging import supervision form.

Drying by heat
Step 3

Drying by heat

Fresh paddy is put into the drying compartment through a conveyor system, then spread evenly and dried until it reaches the prescribed humidity.

Unless dried paddy is immediately produced, it will be packed in 50kg net weight PP bags or stored in cool and dry containers.

Husking
Step 4

Husking

The dried paddy is transmitted by conveyor to the rice husking system.

Use sieves to separate extraneous matter such as strings and sewing thread.

Whitening and Polishing
Step 5

Whitening and Polishing

Brown and white rice is whitened and polished to guarantee the desired whiteness.

Rice and brokens grading
Step 6

Rice and brokens grading

The whitened and polished rice is transferred to the grain separator / grain selector to classify broken rice and rice.

Mixing rice
Step 7

Mixing rice

The mixing ratio between rice and broken rice is adjusted under each specific product and customer requirements.

This stage only applies to a specific product or as required by customers.

Packing
Step 8

Packing

The rice is packed in PP bags, sewn by mouth and piled up - prepared for fumigation.

Fumigating
Step 9

Fumigating

Rice is fumigated during the required time (authorized units) to eliminate insects.

Sieving, Sorting stone & color, Hoovering
Step 10

Sieving, Sorting stone & color, Hoovering

The rice is passed through the rock sorter and then passed through the color sorter to remove the unqualified kernels (chalky kernels, yellow kernels, damaged kernels, red kernels, etc.).

The rice is then put through the sieves and hoovers to remove the remaining insects and extraneous matter.

Weighting - Packing
Step 11

Weighting - Packing

The rice is weighted with automated scales. After being weighed, the rice will be packed in 1 of 2 specifications:

  • 1. PP/OPP/PE bags, sew 2 threads, no rotation, net weight 25, 30, 50 kg.
  • 2. PE/PA, vacuum packing, not rotating, net weight from 3 to 5 kg.

Or on demand of customers.

Metal Detection
Step 12

Metal Detection

After packing, transfer the rice to the metal detector to remove any leftover metal in the product.

Preserving
Step 13

Preserving

After packing, the product will be piled up to preserve, if not delivered immediately.

Delivering
Step 14

Delivering

The rice is loaded onto clean and ventilated transport vehicles, with rain tarpaulins (means of transport to the container loading point).

In case the quantity of exported goods is not enough, the finished rice will be stored in a dry and cool environment for shipment.
