A poultry slaughterhouse and processing factory, worth VND300 billion (US$12.9 million), opened its doors in the central province of Thanh Hoa on Thursday.

Financed by Phu Gia Agricultural Product JSC and Master Good Group of Hungary, the factory covers 11,000sq.m in Hoang Quy Commune, Hoang Hoa District. It has a capacity of 4,500 chickens per hour in the first phase before doubling in the second phase.

In his speech at the launching ceremony, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong praised the opening of the factory, saying it would contribute to fostering provincial socio-economic development and the country's agriculture industry.

For his part, provincial People's Committee chairman Nguyen Dinh Xung said the plant is expected to create stable incomes for workers and produce high value-added agricultural products.

Poultry products produced at the plant will be exported to Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and European countries, he said.

It could expand co-operation in agricultural development between Viet Nam and Hungary, and promote Thanh Hoa's agricultural products to the global market, the chairman said.

Earlier, Phu Gia also co-operated with Master Good Group to build a chicken breeding chain for export as part of efforts to promote modern husbandry and join global product supply chains. — VNS
