Ha Giang inaugurates organic tea plant using Japanese high-tech

An organic tea production plant using the latest Japanese technology was inaugurated in Tan Lap commune, Bac Quang district, the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang on April 12.

The 4,500-square-metre plant was built at a total cost of more than 30 billion VND (1.32 million USD) by Hoang Long Tea Co., Ltd. Equipped with an automatic production line, the plant is capable of processing 40 billion tonnes of fresh tea per day, which helps consume material tea in Tan Lap commune and other regions in the vicinity.

At the inauguration ceremony, Vice Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Nguyen Manh Dung noted that tea is seen as a spearhead plant in the province’s agricultural economic development plan.

Hoang Long company is one of the leading firms in developing tea material zones and promoting connections with local farmers to ensure effective tea cultivation, he said, urging the firm to continue its efforts to improve product quality and income for tea growers.

Ha Giang province will direct branches and districts to zone off tea processing areas to develop safe tea in line with organic standards, he stressed.

For his part, Director of Hoang Long Tea Co., Ltd Nguyen Duc Lai noted that the company always pays attention to deploying technology in tea production to bring clean and top-quality products to consumers.

The company’s black tea and green tea is favoured by both domestic and foreign customers, he added.

Earlier in 2002, the company constructed a tea plant in Hung An commune, Bac Quang district with total capacity of 50 billion tonnes of fresh tea per day.
