HCMC – Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) and Instanta have recently inaugurated ILD Coffee Vietnam, a joint venture freeze-dried instant coffee facility, in the southern province of Binh Duong.
With an annual capacity of 5,600 metric tons, the facility is expected to meet rising global demand for instant coffee, particularly premium types.
ILD Coffee Vietnam is equipped with the latest extraction and freeze-drying technology. Its equipment system is also designed to minimize the plant’s environmental footprint.
The facility’s products are aimed at coffee consumers in Europe and Asia, according to an official release.

The firm, founded in 1851, is a leading merchant and processor of agricultural goods. It operates in over 100 countries and employs around 17,000 people globally.
