Stevia processing factory built in North Phyongan
The Stevia Processing Factory has been built in Jongju, North Phyongan Province, with a due inaugural ceremony.
The construction of the factory, which is furnished with the processes for exosmosis, cohesion, evaporation and concentration of raw materials, the filtration of activated charcoal and spraying and drying, has made it possible to lay a foundation for the successful production and supply of stevia sugar and liquid sugar which are high in sweet taste and low in sugar content.
In order to perfect the syrup production process with corn as the main ingredient, the factory made and installed dozens of facilities including liquefying and mash tanks, displacer and condenser, as well as a full set of packaging process, thereby developing it into a model and standard factory in the province.
