According to Mr. Minh, An Phat Holdings, with its green production orientation, towards sustainable development, has researched and self-developed many technologies to modernize production such as digital transformation for each stage, continuously improving product formulas to help reduce production waste to almost zero, or installing solar power to help reduce the load on the power grid and effectively cool the factory.
