The TH Group on Thursday began construction of its fruit and fruit juice processing factory in the northern Son La province’s Van Ho District, Voice of Vietnam reported.

Capitalised at VND1.2 trillion (US$53 million), the factory will be developed in two phases.

The first, worth VND300 billion, will process fruits such as orange, longan, mango and passion fruit with an annual capacity of 30,000 tonnes of products to be sold to other fruit juice producers.

Meanwhile, the second, valued at VND900 billion, will provide several kinds of canned fruit juices.

In her speech at the groundbreaking ceremony, Deputy Chairwoman of the National Assembly Tong Thi Phong suggested TH Group accelerate the construction of the factory.

She also called on local authorities to create the most favourable conditions for the group to put its project into operation soon, helping create more jobs and boosting incomes for farmers in the locality.

Currently, Son La Province has 42,600ha of fruits and is striving to increase the figure to 100,000ha by 2020. — VNS
