Kumkop-trademarked Drinks
Pyongyang, January 27 (KCNA) -- Kumkop-trademarked drinks have become popular among local sportspersons.

Vice-secretary of the Weightlifting Association Jon Chol Ho told KCNA:

"The drinks produced by the Kumkop Combined Foodstuff Factory for Sportspersons are favored by athletes, particularly weightlifters, footballers and marathoners, for their good flavor and nutritive qualities.

It is very important for athletes to get back water in time after training. The drinks help them recover from fatigue in a relatively short time."

A section chief of the factory, O Hyang Rim, said, "Our factory is associated with leader Kim Jong Il's deep concern for the country's sports development. We will provide athletes with highly nutritive drinks and help them register good results in international tournaments."

The factory, which began operation in October Juche 100 (2011), also turns out rice cakes, bread, cookies and processed meat.
