Vitasoy has announced that it will invest HKD1.21 billion ($154 million) to build a new production facility in Dongguan, China.
The 100,000 square metre production facility will be Vitasoy’s largest production facility in mainland China, and the facility should be operational by 2021.
Vitasoy claims that the new facility will significantly expand the production capacity of its plant-based food and beverage products, which are available in 40 markets worldwide.
Winston Lo, Vitasoy’s executive chairman said: “Mainland China is now our biggest and fastest growing market.
“The new Dongguan production base will be Vitasoy’s biggest plant, but our commitment and determination goes beyond scale.
“The new plant will also provide us with adequate production capacity to support our future expansion.
“We are determined to grow a healthy and sustainable business which can represent a model for the future, and can contribute to the health of the communities we serve in mainland China.”
