Built at a cost of 12.9 million EUR, the facility at the Song Than 3 industrial park in Thu Dau Mot City is capable of producing 10,000 tonnes of cheese products per year.
Bel Vietnam said it wants to bring nutritious dairy products for Vietnamese consumers, with a long-term strategy of becoming a supply centre for the entire Southeast Asian market.
Speaking at the factory’s inauguration ceremony, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Thanh Liem said the event marks a new development of the company in line with the local policy on investment attraction.
Binh Duong is committed to creating the best conditions possible for Bel Vietnam to operate effectively, Liem pledged.
Bel Vietnam is the maker of several popular cheese products in Vietnam such as Con Bo Cuoi (Laughing Cow), Kiri and Babybel.
