NDO – A fresh fruit and herb processing factory officially came into operation in the Van Ho district in the northern mountainous province of Son La on September 20.

Capitalised at VND1.2 trillion (US$53 million), the factory is being developed in two phases. The construction of the first phase started in January, 2018.

The first phase (by 2025) worth VND300 billion and will process fruits such as orange, longan, mango and passion fruit with an annual capacity of 300 tonnes of products, all being sold to other fruit juice producers.

Meanwhile, the second phase (after 2025), valued at VND900 billion, will provide several kinds of canned fruit juices.

Speaking at the ceremony, leaders of Son La province and TH Group pledged to comply with the objectives set out, contributing to soon turning Son La into a high-quality agricultural processing centre in the Northern mountainous region, as well as supporting farmers in promoting hi-tech agricultural production to considerably reduce poverty rates in the locality.
