Da Nang approves first-ever dairy project
Vo Ngoc Sinh, Director of Da Nang Diary plant, under the Viet Nam dairy Products Joint-Stock Company (Vinamilk), told Viet Nam News that the project will be built with an investment of VND600 billion (US$26.5 million).
Sinh said the project plans to develop a herd of 4,000 dairy cows in 2017-20 and supply 40 tonnes of fresh cow’s milk for the plant each day.
He said the project would help boost socio-economic development and income for the poor Da Nang suburbs.
It’s the third Vinamilk dairy farm in the central region, after Lam Dong in the Central Highlands and Binh Dinh Province.
Vinamilk also built a milk-processing plant in Hoa Khanh Industrial Zone.
The project will include dairy-farm tours for visitors at the site, a maize and grass fields.
Vinamilk has developed 10 dairy farms with a herd of 15,000 dairy cows in Tuyen Quang, Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Binh Dinh and Lam Dong provinces.
