The company, being situated in Charentsavan, plans to equip a metal casting plant, investing 7.3 million AMD, which will allow installing equipment in accordance with ‘Siemens VAI’ company.

About 1 ton of mushrooms produced daily are completely sold on the domestic market; a certain amount has been exported to UAE.
