Invested by Chanh Thu Fruit Import-Export Group JSC, the 476 billion VND (over 20 million USD) factory is the biggest of its kind in Dak Lak.
Located in Ea Drong commune, Cu M’gar district, the project, which has a total annual capacity of 70,000 tonnes of materials, will be completed after 18 months.
It is expected to benefit farmers in Dak Lak in particular and in the Central Highlands in general, contributing to improving the value of farm produce in the region and playing an important role in increasing the value of Vietnamese agricultural products exported to other countries around the world.
The plant will focus on purchasing and packing fresh fruits such as durian, passion fruit, sweet potato, and banana for export to China, Japan, the US, and Australia; and producing and processing frozen fruits for export, especially durian.
It will also work on processing and developing deeply processed agricultural products to ship to global markets, and building a sustainable link chain with cooperatives and farmers.
Ngo Tuong Vy, General Director of Chanh Thu Fruit Import-Export Group JSC, said the investment aims to bring benefits to Vietnamese farmers, and improve the brand value of durian fruit in particular and Vietnamese fruit products in general in the world market.
