DONG NAI (VNS) — A US$12 million coffee processing plant was opened by the German group Neumann Gruppe on Monday in the An Phuoc Industrial Zone, Long Thanh District, southern province of Dong Nai.
Covering an area of 5ha, by 2017, the plant was designed to process about 26 tonnes of coffee per hour. The product will be exported worldwide.
The plant is the second backed by Neumann Gruppe in Viet Nam. The first was constructed in 1992 in southern Binh Duong Province.
Vice chairman of the Dong Nai provincial People's Committee, Nguyen Phu Cuong, said he hoped the plant would help expand coffee growing areas.
The German group has 46 coffee processing plants in 28 countries. They contribute 10 per cent of global coffee exports. — VNS
