THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: N. Korean plant makes kimchi under Kim's loving care


North Korea is producing kimchi at a new plant "built under the loving care" of leader Kim Jong-Un, who praised this as one of the world's five health foods, state media said Friday.

Kim made his remarks while inspecting the sprawling Ryugyong Pickle Factory, built to supply Pyongyang residents with the traditional dish year-round, the KCNA said.

The plant is capable of producing 4,200 tons a year of the piquant, pungent, and fermented vegetable - a side dish which accompanies every rice meal for Koreans.

The North Korean leader said the factory would set the standard for the Korean Peninsula's industrial production of kimchi and called for the construction of a modern kimchi factory in every province modelled on the Ryugyong plant.

At last month's historic Workers' Party Congress, Kim Jong Un stressed he would push through with his signature policy of Byungjin - building up the North's nuclear arsenal and developing the economy at the same time.

Over the past month, Kim has focused his inspection trips on facilities related to the people's daily livelihood including a new soap factory, a salt plant, a hospital, and a factory producing sports goods.
