Rice Trading

0. Executive Summary

The Product: RICE

We can offer:  Thailand Rice, Vietnam Rice, Pakistan Rice, Indian Rice, Brazilian Rice and Philippine Rice (Philippine Rice is for local consumption/delivery only due to government regulation)

I simply intend to establish a profitable wholesale-retail Rice Trading firm, in collaboration with our Rice Miller partners in Bulacan, Cagayan-Isabela, Nueva Ecija and Laguna. We are not exclusive to one supplier to be very sure on price competitiveness and standards.

  1. The Business

1.1. Business Model and Value Proposition

1.1.1. Definition

As such, BIGAS@N101 will serve as a Rice online wholesale arm of Sembawang Trading, and as the go-between for the manufacturers/producers and the wholesale buyer/importer to meet their needs in the market.

This business dream to expand in the near future in the areas of farming and support to farmers and new entrepreneurs.

1.1.2. Business Name

We are registered as…

The word “Sembawang” was derived from a residential place in Singapore called Sembawang Drive to where the proponent learned online commodity trading when he briefly stayed on 2005.  We facilitate various products for export.

But as to our local rice offer, we plan to use a different name, as per suggested Signage design below.  If not, we will have no choice but to register below logolized company name


“Bigas” means Rice and “Bigasan” means Rice Store. The “@” was inserted instead of plain “a” as it is a symbol of e-commerce and trading. This will communicate to consumers that we are more than an ordinary rice store, we also facilitate wholesale and be also found in the internet (on-line rice trading). Our store name is easy to understand.

1.1.3. Objective

To go beyond the usual and to be a partner in progress

1.1.4. Mission

Never stop searching for ways  to better serve and satisfy our clients.

At the same time, we aim to create  a balance-work atmosphere above and beyond personal gain.

1.1.5. Vision

Out of the box rice trade and agriculture  with dignity and social responsibility.

1.1.6. Core Values

  • Teamwork
  • Knowledge
  • Hard work
  • Integrity
  • Satisfaction
  • Respect
  • Social responsibility
  • …”whatever we do, we do it all  for the glory of God”


“People succeeded in their projects

not only because they know

how to grow their crops

or their farm animals.

They succeed because they know

how to market they produce.

They know how to time their production

so that they sell their harvests

at a high price.”
– Zac B. Sarian

1.1.7. Location

Tagaytay is where I and my family reside.  It’s progress in terms of tourist destination and realty development is a strategic decision to establish a commodity trading firm.

  2. Sir,
    I’m very interested in starting a rice trading business in the Philippines this year. I’ve already got contacts with some farmers in the area and would like begin setting up a business model from which I can begin to work. Please send me a copy of your business plan. I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Keep it Simple…before you begin spending your time documenting your business, remember you’re in the Philippines where the rule of law is weak and anyone can do their business anyway they want without too much regulation as to business etiquette and honesty. I doubt if you can commit the farmers on a price before harvest as most of them already have their Trader in place who will make sure to stop others from infringing on their supply. Free Enterprise is unheard of in this country. By the way, if you’re interested in trading Coconut Sap Sugar….let me know. It’s an untapped market ! Not much competition.

    • Hi Petros,
      I have currently in stock 1000 kilos at 500 pesos per kilo. If you’re interested in trading this sugar your wholesale price is 400 pesos per kilo. The coco sugar comes in one kilo plastic bags. It is up to you to re-package the sugar into smaller packages such as sachets or 300 gram boxes with your own personal brand. Then it would be ready to stock in Grocery shelves as a high end gourmet, organic coconut sugar excellent for diabetics and health conscious adults and children.

  4. Hi Denis,
    Can you prepare me a feasibility study on the market of Coconut sap sugar.I have a 1000 kilos of it available right now out of Carcar Cebu at 190pesos per kilo. I have no buyers and need a marketing strategy for this new product that is considered the best sweetener for diabetics and health buffs. Thank you
