The factory of us is located inside the site of JCIA, Cambodian Rakugan is trying to let our staffs to get knowledge and abilities through our work and support them to improve themselves to be strong enough as they could survice their own life. At the same time, we have chances to communicate with farmers and also support them to have opportunity of business.
Some Cambodian young people are used to getting direct support from foreign countries, of course in some part, offering monetary and material support is still needed, but we take another role encouraging them to have active attitude towards work and to think, decide and take action by themselves.
We have a dream that some of our staffs will plan and create new products, and that would be accepted and admired by the world some day.
Cambodian Rakugan is our original confection made from Cambodian organic palm sugar. We have arranged the making process of Japanese traditional sweets. “Rakugan”and created unique souvenir. The symbol is “Apsara”-a female spirit in Hindu and Buddhist mythology. It would be one of the best gift of a fantastic trip in Cambodia.

Palm nectar is widely familiar to Cambodian people from ancient times. We have refined that and produced the high quality organic palm sugar. Japanese supervisor is managing all the process of making our sugar. Especially from the viewpoint of the hygiene management.Compare to normal sugar. Palm sugar has more various nutrients and raises blood sugar level slower.
