A group of Chinese investors will set up a factory to manufacture food products of Moringa (Drumsticks) in Hambantota, Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.

The investors have told the Minister that they will introduce a number of Morenga food products to the international market.

They said they will manufacture Morenga sauce, drinks, and seed oil at the factory.

People in Hambantota will earn a good income by growing Morenga with the venture. Moringa grows in Hambantota, Moneragala and Jaffna. The plant yields throughout the year and contains many nutrients.

Every part of the tree, roots, trunk, seeds, flowers, and pods, can be used as food or medicine.

Its leaves are the most nutritious.

They contain B and C vitamins, Provitamin A as beta-carotene, K vitamin, manganese, and protein among others.

Moringa is rich in antioxidants and it reduces blood sugar and cholesterol and inflammation.
