Processing, packaging, and preservation plant to meet demand in and around the northern province.
The Hung Viet Company put a fruit and vegetable processing, packaging, and preservation plant into operation on January 10 in Gia Tan commune, Gia Loc district, Hai Duong province.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Anh Cuong expressed his joy at the plant being officially put into operation, saying it will contribute to the promotion of agricultural production for supermarkets, wholesale markets, and workplace canteens. It will also improve the incomes of local farmers.
The plant is a key project for the province’s agriculture sector, with total investment of VND65.96 billion ($2.94 million), and will create a large-scale supply chain of raw materials not only for Hai Duong province but also the northern region as a whole.
With advanced equipment and an operating capacity of about 300,000 tons per year, the plant also has a cold storage system with the latest technology, such as rapid cooling, ensuring long storage times and high product quality.
“The plant has cooperation with foreign partners from China and South Korea as well as leaders of Cam Giang district and Gia Loc district to develop material zones and product consumption,” said Mr. Tang Xuan Truong, Director of the Hung Viet Company.
Gia Loc district is one of the largest vegetable-growing districts in the area. Provincial leaders expect the plant will continue to expand in scale and promote local agricultural products.
