Fruitful internship for five students in aquaculture and seafood industry

A group of five students from the National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU) who completed a six-month training and internship programme at Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd received certificates at an event held by the company at its production facility in Kampong Serambangun, Tutong District to celebrate them for completing the training programme.

The internship training is the result of collaboration agreement between the university and Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd, whereby the company receives technical advice about aquaculture and seafood processing. In return, Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd provides internship training to the students. Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd hosts on-going internship programmes with NTOU to help the students receive a holistic learning of the aquaculture industry, the programme requiring them to train in different departments within the company to gain hands-on work experience.

Besides foreign schools, Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd also hosts on-going internship programmes with the Department of Schools of the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Brunei Darussalam. The company works with the MoE in supporting the development of local students in terms of working skills and gaining new skills and knowledge, as well as providing them with opportunities to experience and learn something new about the aquaculture and seafood industry.

Richard Chuang Hsi Shan, the Managing Director of Golden Corporation, presented certificates of appreciation to the students.

The students, who hold National Diplomas in food science, have been undergoing training at different sections within Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd for the last six months.

There, they learnt about the processing of shrimp and surimi at the company’s fully equipped processing plant in the Tutong District, as well as the importance of food security requirements within a seafood processing plant. They also learnt about sustainability and reduction of wastage while undergoing training in the Fish Meal and Feed Department. At the end of the training, they presented their learnings to the management of Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd.

Golden Corporation Sdn Bhd is an established integrated seafood company with operational headquarters in Brunei Darussalam. The company is now the largest private employer in the Tutong District and a major player in the seafood industry in the Sultanate.
