Havana.- Cuba's industry is executing a broad program of investment in the eastern part of the country in order to improve the quality of products obtained from fruit and vegetables processing.
In that regard, works benefit the Combinado Industrial de Cítricos, in Contramaestre, in Santiago de Cuba province.
Changes will benefit 17 new lines of production by the end of the year, including septic packaging for tomato byproducts.
Furthermore, an Italian-made line is on trial to extract and process mango pulp, resulting in a higher yield and high-quality paste.
In addition, concentrated juice and essential oils of orange and grapefruit are exported.
The Combinado Industrial de Cítricos proceses fruit and vegetables, including mango, tomato, carrot, guava, papaya, tamarind, avocado, cashew and pineapple, among others.
