LÂM ĐỒNG — The Lâm Đồng-based Việt Green Maca Company reported that it shipped about 10 tonnes of macadamia nuts to the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Singapore in March.
According to director of the company, Đỗ Đình Dũng, the firm has provided to the market 25 tonnes of the nut, 40 per cent of which were exported to the RoK and Singapore, and the rest to domestic consumers.
The processed products of the company include dried macadamia and macadamia nuts, and macadamia candy, he said.
Fresh macadamia nuts are processed with advanced technology, with product quality meeting export standards, said Dũng.
The official revealed that the company purchases material macadamia from local farmers, with about 50 tonnes of fresh macadamia collected so far this year.
Dũng said that currently, the company has coordinated with about 100 local farmer households who grow about 140 hectares of macadamia. However, materials from the locality have met only 70 per cent of the factory’s capacity.
In the future, the company plans to continue expanding its partnership with more local farmers in order to have enough material for production, serving domestic and foreign markets, he added. — VNS
