Construction on the largest flour mill in China is expected to begin before the end of the year, according to an official source. The new flour mill, which will have an annual processing capacity of 500,000 tonnes, will be built in Yangpu, in the island province of Hainan, the country's largest special economic zone, the source said.
China's State Development and Planning Commission, at the approval of the State Council, endorsed the feasibility report on the mill. The project is estimated to cost U.S.$104 million.
