Coming Soon: First Kimchi Factory in the Philippines to be built in Benguet

Kimchi ||
Cordillera - Kimchi - the famous traditional side dish that screams Koreans, may soon be produced in the Philippines and the factory will be located in the capital town of Benguet - La Trinidad. 

That is, if the Korean investors are successful in locating a suitable land for their proposed 3,000-hectare kimchi factory.
According to La Trinidad Mayor Romeo K. Salda, the Korean investors have not yet able to locate the said land area so they need to reduce the land size. 

Mayor Salda said that the local government is now helping the South Korean investors in locating a suitable land for the said factory which will add another avenue for vegetable farmers to sell their produce especially cabbage.

Establishing the first Kimchi factory in Benguet province will greatly help the local vegetable farmers considering that one of the top ingredients of Kimchi  are cabbage, radish, and other vegetables that can be produced in the province.

"We were able to identify some public and private properties in the municipality which might be suitable for the proposed kimchi factory  but most of them were not able to pass the standard of the Korean investors that is why we continue to look for other areas that will be offered to them for the realization of their desired project that will contribute in spurring the significant increase of economic activities in the municipality," Mayor Salda said.

Mayor Salda said that the investors had reduced the land area for the proposed kimchi factory so that it could be easier to find a suitable land. This according to Salda shows how the Koreans are eager to set up the factory the soonest possible time.

If the factory is going to push trough, it would not only benefit the farmers but also generate additional jobs to local residents of the province, according to Salda.

The market for Kimchi in the world market has grown significantly over the years and establishing a factory here in the Philippines would not be a problem because the supply of raw materials is abundant despite greater demands.
