Financed by the Master Good Group of Hungary and the province-based Phu Gia JSC, the Viet Avis plant will cover 60,000sq.m in Hoang Quy Commune, Hoang Hoa District. It will be able to process 2,500 chickens per hour in the first phase for sale on the local market as well as export to the EU, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore.

During his speech at the event, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong urged the two enterprises to complete the construction of the plant on schedule while ensuring social security, environmental protection and job creation.

According to Thanh Hoa’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the livestock sector has developed strongly in recent years in both scale and quality. Regarding poultry, the province currently supplies more than 36,300 tonnes of meat per year.

The province is restructuring its livestock sector to create value chains with large-scale and hi-tech farms. It aims to have 23 million head of poultry by 2020, producing 47,000 tonnes of meat in live weight and over 160 billion eggs.
