(BGO) – Vifoco Import Export Joint Stock Company (Vifoco) in Bac Giang city (Bac Giang province) has inked the contract to buy 700 tonnes of fresh lychees from two cooperatives in Luc Ngan district, namely Hong Xuan and Xuyen Viet Agriculture Production and General Service Supply Cooperatives.
According to Nguyen Xuan Viet, Chief Executive Officer, Director of Vifoco, this year the company will process and export 25 containers of canned lychee flesh, frozen lychee flesh, frozen lychee without stalk to several markets of Republic of Korea, German, France and sell a small part in domestic markets.
Vifoco is preparing the machine and equipment to process the lychee for export.
Total value of processed lychee products hits some 600,000 USD, much higher than the fresh fruits.
Now, Vifoco is preparing the necessary conditions of machine, package, lable, man power... to ensure the prompt operation as soon as the main lychee season comes.
The lychee processing helps increase the farm produce value, prolong the using time and reduce the pressure on fresh lychee consumption. Thus, the agencies and localities have actively attracted the processing enterprises to consume the lychee this year.
