Elevating the Value of Vietnamese Lemons with Deep Processing.

Realizing the immense potential of every part of the lemon, not just its juice, Vietnamese lemon processors have harnessed its various components to create valuable products. Lemon peels, for instance, are distilled into essential oils that find applications in the pharmaceutical industry. The lemon pulp and its juice are not wasted either, as they are processed into concentrated lemon powder, serving as raw materials for various production lines such as lemon salt and soft drinks. This realization has sparked a transformative idea within the company "Vietnamese Lemon" to delve into the world of deep processing and produce a range of lemon products for export.
