A ground-breaking ceremony for a locally-invested soy milk plant was held in Tien Son industrial zone, the northern province of Bac Ninh on August 25.

With a designed capacity of 1 billion cartons a year, Vinasoy - Bac Ninh plant, invested by Quang Ngai Sugar Joint Stock Company, is expected to become one of the world’s five largest soy milk factories.

Covering an area of 60,000 sq.m, the plant is equipped with synchronous and automatic equipment from Sweden’s Tetra Pak group. It will employ 200 workers and help local soybean growers secure a stable source of income. The plant is expected to complete its first phase in May, 2013.-VNA
