There will also be a Tetra-Pac line in the factory, which will be used for both home-made apple juice and imported concentrated juice. The value of the project is estimated at 10 million ?. At the moment, agencies concerned are exploring the European market of juice extraction equipment producers. They are also considering the possibility of drawing a reduced interest rate loan from the Government of China.
