A pomelo packaging factory equipped with Taiwanese technology was inaugurated late last week in the southern province of Ben Tre.

The facility has a total investment capital of 7 billion VND (336,000 USD), of which 70 percent was invested by Huong Mien Tay factory.

The province now has 4,000ha to grow green-skinned pomelos with only 30 percent meeting export standards. Export volume will increase to 70-80 percent if growers apply advanced production models and Global Good Agricultural Practices standards (GlobalGAP). /.
