There she is Le DCP (Ministry of Agriculture and rural Development) awarded the title of "The innovative agriculture".

    Ms Le said: Binh Phuoc is the capital of the cashew. Every year, the cashew has brought great benefit as farmers change lives. Cashew nuts are not only widely developed in the domestic market but also exported to many countries around the world. However, only the people of Binh Phuoc cashews advantage while the husband left to throw, waste on the ground. That does not make the best economic potential revenue but also pollute the environment.

And alcohol for as long as a good thing. Therefore, the market price is more expensive than selling rice wine. A liter of wine that sells for $ 40 thousand.

    Processing the manual method, but it's Ms. Le liquor was certified product technical creativity 3/2015 th provincial and programs present in many exhibitions, investment promotion abroad.


    Wine is unique drinks longstanding. It's always there in the holidays, parties and even the people's normal day.

    At the Technical Innovation Contest Binh Phuoc 3/2015 th, the inventor of wine that drew My Le, compelling many to enjoy. Even her that alcohol was present at Le major markets such as Hanoi, Ho. Ho Chi Minh or Cambodia in the exhibitions, trade promotion.
