Sindh

Spread over 140,900 square kilometers and with a population of over 50 million, Sindh is the second largest province of Pakistan in terms of population. The province is bordered by land on three sides, with the Arabian Sea in the south west. The mighty Indus River flows from the world’s highest mountains into the Arabian Sea. The colossal flow of Indus water has brought for Sindh rich silt and sandy loam from northern areas which enhance the fertility of the soil. The climate of Sindh is arid and hot. According to the climatic and soil condition of the province, different areas are suitable for different crops e.g. Larkana, Shikarpur and Jacobabad are suitable for growing rice as main crop and peas, mustard and sunflower as minor crops.

SadhokePlant

Matco Foods installed another state-of-the-art rice husking/parboiling plant on 15 Acres of land in Gujranwala, the world-renowned rice cultivating district of the country, popularly known as the “Basmati Bowl” of Pakistan. This expansion in the economically backward region aims to further enhance Matco Food’s role as a responsible rice exporter of Pakistan. As the leading Basmati rice exporter from Pakistan, we understand that the most sought after world class basmati rice cannot be produced without world class rice processing plants. With the collaboration of the latest Japanese, American, British &Indian technologies, this facility includes modern paddy dryers, rice parboiling units, and silos that monitor humidity, temperature and moisture of rice paddy. Matco envisions making this facility the single largest rice husking and parboiling plant in Pakistan. The hallmark of this plant is world class efficiency which focuses on preventing10%-15% grain loss due to post-harvest losses.
