HÀ NỘI — The first phase of a fresh fruit and herb processing factory recently came into operation in Vân Hồ District, the northern mountainous province of Sơn La.
The factory has a total investment capital of VNĐ1.2 trillion (US$53 million).
The first phase is worth VNĐ300 billion and will process fruits such as orange, longan, mango and passion fruit with an annual capacity of 300 tonnes of products, all sold to other fruit juice producers. The construction of the first phase started in January 2018.
Meanwhile, the second phase with an investment of VNĐ900 billion is expected to be put into operation after 2025 and will provide several kinds of canned fruit juices.
Speaking at the opening ceremony late last week, leaders of Sơn La Province and TH Group pledged to comply with the objectives set out, contributing to turning Sơn La into a high-quality agricultural processing centre, as well as supporting farmers in promoting high-tech agricultural production to reduce poverty in the locality. — VNS
