About SL-Agritech

SL Agritech Corporation (SLAC) is a private company engaged in the research, development, production and distribution of hybrid rice seed and premium quality rice. Inspired by the success of China to overcome food shortages shortly after the postwar era and become surplus producer and exporter of rice, the Lim family sought and obtained the assistance of Prof. Yuan Long Ping to develop hybrid rice varieties suitable to tropical conditions prevalent in the Philippines. The personal commitment of the person widely regarded as the “father” of hybrid rice laid the foundation that dictated the direction and growth of the company and gave it a unique position in the development of hybrid rice technology in the Philippines.  

 SLAC was established in September 2000 under the ownership and management of Sterling Paper Group of Companies.  Although relatively new in the rice industry, SLAC has proven its competitive edge in the local and international platform. Apart from it being an ISO-certified rice company, it is also the largest local hybrid rice seed company in the Philippines and tropical Asia, and a market leader in premium quality rice. SLAC is the firstlocal company to export high quality milled rice in the country.

SLAC works with several partners to boost the adoption of hybrid rice technology. Together with Department of Agriculture and its hybrid rice program, SLAC strives to pursueits vision of a rice self-sufficient and hunger-free world.
