SEOUL, June 10 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited a newly-built kimchi factory in a move to show he cares about his people's livelihoods, a state-run media report picked up in Seoul said Friday,

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said the leader toured the Ryugyong Pickle Factory, which is a "modern pickling production base built under the loving care of Kim Jong-un."

According to the new wire, the factory is located in the suburbs of Pyongyang with a total floor space of more than 15,660 square meters that is able to produce over 4,200 tons of kimchi a year.

Kimchi is a spicy pickled side dish made with cabbage, cucumbers or radishes.

"He set all the problems arising in the construction of the factory, noting that it was needed to build a modern pickle factory with large capacity whose industrialization is put on a higher level in order to supply Pyongyang citizens with tasty pickles," the KCNA said.

The North Korean leader stressed the need to build a modern pickling factory in each province on the basis of the experience gained from the construction of the Ryugyong Pickle Factory.
