It is equipped with pig and chicken slaughtering lines and a European-standard food production system. With technologies imported from Germany and Denmark, it can slaughter 250,000 – 300,000 pigs and 6 – 9 million chickens a year to produce about 19,000 tonnes of pork and 10,000 – 13,000 tonnes of chicken meat. This plant is also set to manufacture about 3 – 5 tonnes of processed meat products daily. An executive of DOFICO said the inauguration of the factory has created a complete production chain from animal food production, farming, slaughtering to food processing and distribution. It will help ensure consumption for the animal husbandry sector in Dong Nai and neighbouring provinces. Dong Nai is one of the biggest husbandry centres of Vietnam. It is part of the southern key economic region, which also includes Ho Chi Minh City and the provinces of Tay Ninh, Binh Phuoc, Binh Duong, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Long An and Tien Giang.
