MIAMI, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the Nigerian Ministry of Agriculture's recent contract for Blumberg Grain food security and storage systems, Blumberg Grain has also been chosen to provide its grain warehousing in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The DRC project includes the installation of the company's Grain Vault product line with integrated security systems.
David Blumberg, CEO of Blumberg Grain - West Africa, commented that "This initial DRC order represents another important deployment of Blumberg Grain's food security storage and systems. Throughout Africa, governments emphasize the need to lower post-harvest losses in order to increase farmer incomes and boost agricultural output. That's a key focus of Blumberg Grain's food security systems."
Philip Blumberg, CEO of Blumberg Capital Partners, stated "We will also be looking into investing in processing plants, cleaning, drying and packaging facilities in the DRC."
Blumberg Grain is a leading US based food security company, providing vertically integrated crop and food storage systems and technology. Blumberg Grain's food safety and security infrastructure and warehousing can reduce post-harvest losses of grain, produce, and other perishables to 5% or less. Blumberg Grain works with private companies and countries to modernize agricultural value chains, increase the quality and marketable output of their harvests, enable efficient market timing, and significantly boost exports of agriculture products.
As part of its international growth strategy, Blumberg Grain is developing manufacturing plants and export hubs in Africa, Asia, and South America.
