COFCO's Anhui-based oilseed protein plant comes on stream
 

 

China's foodstuff giant COFCO Limited has recently put its oilseed protein processing base in Chaohu, Anhui province into operation.

 

The project, jointly set up by Anhui province and the state-owned conglomerate, went into trial production this September after a construction of more than one year.

 

The facility is able to process 300,000 tonnes of oilseed protein a year, bringing in RMB1.8 billion (US$284 million) in annual output value. All the production lines in the plant are running well, said COFCO.
