Equipped with advanced technologies from Germany, Sweden, Italy and Japan, the plant includes a production line for fresh fruits and vegetables and heat treatment with a total capacity of 10,000 tons per year, a frozen fruit and vegetable production line with a capacity of 20,000 tons, a production line for drying, soft-drying and sublimation drying of fruits and vegetables, and a line for producing condensed fruit juice.

“If there are more plants like this, Tay Ninh province will get rich from agriculture”, he stressed.

The plant  makes international-standard products for export to the U.S., the European Union, the Republic of Korea, Japan and Australia.
