|First batch of vermicelli from Bac Kan is exported to Europe
This marks the first time that an agricultural product from Bac Kan province has been exported to the Central European country, a market that typically places strict regulations and high quality standards on imports.
Indeed, the vermicelli produced by Tai Hoan Cooperative met the standards set by the One Commune One Product OCOP programme after being granted four stars.
Dinh Lam Sang, deputy director of the Bac Kan Department of Industry and Trade, said the vermicelli shipment to the Czech Republic will serve to create added motivation for other local businesses to strive to produce high-quality products that can be exported to this market.
Sang added that the department will continue to work alongside other units in an effort to develop OCOP agricultural products that are granted a rating of at least three stars. In line with this strategy, once relevant products meet strict quality and quantity requirements, they will be exported to the European market.
