Production of Aromatic Essences in Full Swing in DPRK

The Pyongyang Aromatic Trading Company has steadily increased production after it started operation last year. Its products include various kinds of aromatic essences used for making foodstuffs, cosmetics and other daily necessities. The products are considered better than the imported ones. Now they are applied to production at different foodstuff and cosmetics factories, including Pyongyang Cornstarch Factory and Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory.

The director of the company, Kim Myong Suk, told KCNA:

“The company is the country’s first comprehensive producer of aromatic essences. The company will steadily develop new kinds of products and boost production to fully meet the domestic demand.”

The company is collaborating with a French firm.
