Vinamilk Invests in New “Mega” Dairy Factories to Accelerate Export Supply Capacity

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vinamilk, Vietnam’s leading dairy company, has made significant progress in ensuring its production capacity can meet the domestic and export demand in the next two to three years with two vital construction projects.

The perspective of the Moc Chau Dairy Complex Project in Moc Chau Highland

The first will see the building of the largest dairy plant in Hung Yen province, and the second being the Moc Chau dairy complex in the northwest going along with the existing factories and farms system of Vinamilk. When finished, these two projects will increase the 20% production capacity of Vinamilk in preparation for the foreseeable future and strengthen the company’s position in the market.

The Hung Yen dairy plant will connect existing Vinamilk dairy farms, warehouses, and distribution systems to create a sustainable ecosystem and deliver substantial economic benefits. The dairy plant with a total capacity of 400 million liters per year will produce a variety of dairy products to increase supply to Northern Vietnam and for export to ASEAN regions, China, Japan, and South Korea amongst others. The capacity of the UK's production lines in the Vietnam Powdered Milk Factory reaches nearly 23,000 products every hour

The USD 130 million Moc Chau dairy complex, on the other hand, will be a modern, closed agricultural ecosystem consisting of high-tech dairy farms and processing factories that will serve as an additional ecotourism factor. This project which will be implemented in two phases will ultimately produce up to 1,000 tonnes per day to adequately meet global demands.

Vinamilk’s production facilities in Vietnam, including 13 factories and 14 farms, have been following international standards, contributing to its brand value and rapid growth over the decade. Over the last 15 years, a total of USD 615 million have been invested in its factories.

The company also diversified into the powdered milk segment with two factories in Vietnam. One of them – the Vietnam Powdered Milk Factory – has a production capacity of 54,000 tonnes per year, meeting the needs of nearly one million children every year with well-known product ranges such as Dielac, RiDielac, and Optimum Gold. The Hung Yen Dairy Factory will be officially started construction in 2023

More importantly, the variety of dairy offerings is produced using highly automated systems powered by leading technology to lock in the nutrients and natural taste, especially seen in Vinamilk’s Optimum Gold. This baby infant formula contains HMO, the third most abundant component found in breast milk. HMO alongside 26 vitamins, minerals, and DHA help prevent pathogen adhesion, support healthy digestion, and enhance the immune system.

“Vinamilk products are exported to over 57 countries and territories globally. With our production capacity ramped up, we are better positioned to serve the various needs of the global market,” shared Vo Trung Hieu, International Business Director of Vinamilk. “Our commitment to our customers remains strong, with the research and development of new product formulas aligned with market needs, including our design and packaging that are made from recycled materials.”

State power utility, Eskom, says a maintenance company contractor working at the Camden power station has been arrested after he was “positively linked to an incident of sabotage” during investigations. The perpetrator caused Camden’s Unit 4 to trip after allegedly removing a bearing oil drain plug, which continuously tripped the oil burner. The incident occurred in October. “Intensive internal investigations led to the culprit being identified and questioned about the incident. The evidence obtained and the confession made by the perpetrator revealed the plug was intentionally removed to cause the trip. This act of sabotage would ensure that his employer is awarded additional maintenance and repair jobs at the power station,” Eskom said. The arrest comes barely a week after two truck drivers, who were working for an Eskom contracted ash transporting company, were arrested for alleged coal theft at the Kendal power station. “This arrest, together with two last… is the result of persistent and excellent collaborative work by the Eskom Security Team and the South African Police Service (SAPS), who are working tirelessly to identify and disrupt criminal networks,” Eskom said. General Manager for Security at Eskom, Advocate Karen Pillay, said the arrest bears evidence to the power utility’s suspicions that some contractors and employees were deliberately sabotaging power stations. “It is disheartening to find that some of our contractors are unscrupulous, have malicious intent and are willing to plunge the country into further load shedding at a time when the electricity grid is highly constrained. “We have always suspected that some of our maintenance contractors and employees are behind these acts of sabotage. We shall continuously work with the law enforcement agencies to bring these insiders to book and ensure that justice is meted out, but most importantly that those with similar tendencies across Eskom are arrested and removed from the organisation,” she said. Meanwhile, load shedding stage three will be implemented from 4pm to 5am with stage two load shedding implemented during the day from 5am to 4pm. The alternating stages will continue in that order until further notice. Source: South African Government News Agency
