It was said at a press conference in Hanoi on June 18 by the Lang Son provincial People’s Committee and the Vietnam Trade Promotion Centre for Agriculture under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The festival will showcase many famous farm produce of Lang Son including anise, Dong Mo fermented bamboo shoots, forest honey and especially Chi Lang custard apple.
This year’s event will highlight organic custard apples meeting VietGap standards, create a value chain of Chi Lang custard apple and attract more investments to develop Lang Son’s key agricultural products.
Chi Lang custard apple has become one of the most delicious fruits in the north. The National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam under the Ministry of Science and Technology granted a certificate to “Chi Lang custard-apple” brand in 2011. The Organisation of Vietnam Records listed the fruit among 50 best specialities in Vietnam in 2013.
