Via an enclosed pipe system, wheat flour and mixture fluid are pumped into the mixer from the stainless steel container and mixed evenly by automatic equipment
After being mixed, the dough is transferred to the roller via the conveyor system. The noodle belt is pressed gradually by pairs of rough and fined rollers until it reaches the required elasticity and thickness according to the specification of each type of product.
The noodle belt is slitted into large, small, round, flat shapes with different sizes and the typical wavy-shape is formed by the slitter system.
The noodles are gelatinized and cooked in a sealed steam chamber. The source of heat is generated from a modern heating system combined with standard pressure setting and automatic adjustment.
Cutting and molding
Passing through the conveyor to the cutter and cutting board, the noodles are cut into certain length and drop down to the feeder and put into the mold to form the shape for the noodles. Depending on the types of product, noodles are formed in a square shape, round shape, or other shapes for cups, bowls, trays, etc.

There are two drying methods:
- 1. Hot air drying: for non-fried noodles
- 2. Oil-frying: for fried noodles

- • New oil is added continuously with an automatic system
- • Oxidation index of the oil is always controlled in accordance with TCVN (Vietnamese standards) and Codex to ensure that the oil is always fresh.
