Who We Are

Trukai Industries is two thirds owned by SunRice Group. SunRice is a global food business and one of Australia’s leading and most trusted food exporters with sales, marketing and operations spanning the globe.

Trukai is also proudly owned by the people of Papua New Guinea through the Pacific Balanced Fun (PBF) and its 22,000 national unit holders. Weathermen Capital Advisors is the Interim Trustee of the Pacific Balanced Fund.

When you hear the name Trukai, you may think of the familiar yellow, red and green packs of PNG’s favourite rice. But Trukai Industries encompasses much more than rice. In fact Trukai Industries has been a major producer and marketer of the most important staple food for PNG since 1970.

Trukai is also about people; providing employment to all Papua New Guineans from the islands to the highlands and from villages to the towns. Trukai means jobs for farmers, stevedores, office staff, mill workers, farmers, truck drivers, and so much more. Trukai also offers knowledge. Papua New Guineans are gaining expertise in producing food that ensures a nutritious diet for future generations of our people.
