ABC Bakery introduces dragon fruit bread to help famers amid coronavirus outbreak

24/02/2020

The outbreak of the new coronavirus in China is hurting dragon fruit growers in Viet Nam. Prices of dragon fruit has fallen significantly since China began suspending imports of Vietnamese goods, including fruits, via the Lao Cai International Border Gate in the namesake province from 30 January.

Therefore, dragon fruits now face being wastefully disposed of as local demand struggles to match the excess supply.

To help Vietnamese dragon fruit growers overcome their difficulties, Mr Kao Sieu Luc, the General Director of the Asia Bakery and Confectionery (ABC Bakery) Co.Ltd., has come up with the idea of making dragon fruit bread.

ABC Bakery’s dragon fruit bread has captured much attention from its customers throughout the country, including those in Da Nang since ABC Bakery has introduced new flavours and ingredients into their bread.

In Da Nang, you can buy the dragon fruit bread at 109 on 30 April Street, 132 Le Duan, and 284 Trung Nu Vuong.

Baker Luc found the perfect recipe for delicious loaves of dragon fruit bread by replacing 60 percent of the water used in making the dough with a dragon fruit smoothie.
