Cooking Oil & Cotton Processing Factory Launched in Helmand

A cooking oil and cotton processing factory, built within six months, has been launched in Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province.

The plant has provided job opportunities for 100 labors, deputy head of the factory Mohammad Halim Amini told Bakhtar News Agency.

According to the source, a total of 35 out of 120 damaged plants have resumed production in the former poppy-growing Helmand province since Taliban’s takeover in August 2021.

Last month, a cotton processing factory with the capacity of processing 70 tons of cotton per day launched in Balkh province.

In a separate report, a rice processing plant was launched in the northern Baghlan province on Thursday, local media reported.

The rising prices of electricty and the lack of raw materials are major challenges facing Afghan factories.
