The extensiveness of the whole of the factory buildings makes a great impression and if the entrance were not forbidden (as the manufacture is kept a secret) many a tourist wTould be eager to have a look round in this interesting concern.
The situation, in the centre of the cinchona estates and in the immediate vicinity of countries, where much quinine is consumed, is very favourable.
This, in connection with the superiority of its products, enables the factory to most energetically compete with those in Europe and America.
A quantity of about 2,800,000 ounces of sulphate of quinine and other quinine salts, such as hydrochlorate, bisulphate, bihydrochlorate, tannate, etc., complying with the requirements of the different pharma-
map of the
cA pA ias, is prepared every year, the factory being at present the largest quinine factory in the world.
As a speciality, sugar-coated quinine tablets are manufactured, and the large exports of this product, sufficiently demonstrates the superior quality.
Prices, however, are very low and this enables the managers of many ^a and rubber estates to keep their workmen free from malaria, by the distribution of these prophylactical tablets.
The small cost of the prophylactical fight against the malaria by means of the quinine tablets of the Bandoeng Quinine Factory are of no importance if compared with the advantage of prompt working.
