HG Company (My Phu commune, Thu Thua district) specializes in processing and preserving vegetables and fruits. Currently, the company is producing many kinds of dried fruits for the domestic market. Recently, in addition to fresh and dried fruit, the market has a demand for fruit in many other forms, including fine powder. Therefore, HG Company decided to invest in a fine powder mill to satisfy customers' needs.

Due to its new establishment, limited capital, especially affected by the Covid-19 epidemic, HG Company faced many difficulties. Through research and survey, the Center for Industrial Promotion decided to support HG Company to develop a project to support the application of advanced and modern machinery and equipment in agricultural product processing. This is one of the projects to support rural industrial establishments in Long An province to develop production of agricultural products in the 2021-2023 period.

Director of HG Company - Duong Thi Truc Giang said that the company was applying the machine to grind dragon fruit into super fine powder. Through testing, the finished product retains its taste, color and nutritional content. Dragon fruit powder is provided to export partners for food, cosmetics, etc.
Hopefully, with the new direction of HG Company, the province's agricultural products will be diversified into finished products, meeting the needs of domestic and foreign markets./.
