VOV.VN - The southern province of Dong Nai on January 5 hosted a ceremony to export the first batch of processed fruits in the New Year to Europe, the Republic of Korea (RoK), Japan, Russia, and the Middle East.
The New Year shipment, made by Luong Gia Food Technology Joint Stock Company, opens up bright export prospects ahead for local farm produce, said Vo Van Phi, vice chairman of the Dong Nai Provincial People's Committee, at the ceremony.
Luong Gia represents a pioneering enterprise in the locality as it has injected a huge amount of capital into advanced technologies for production, strengthened origin traceability, and ensured food safety for processed products in order to launch high-quality products that meet strict requirements set by importers.
The company has taken advantage of opportunities from various free trade agreements (FTAs) that Vietnam has signed with its partners to boost exports.
The move will help to elevate the position of Vietnamese agricultural products in the international market, said Ho Quoc Thai, chairman of the Board of Directors of Luong Gia Food Technology Joint Stock Company.
According to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dong Nai has exported millions of tonnes of agricultural products to more than 30 countries and territories around the world annually.
Most notably, cashew nuts, coffee, peppers, vegetables, and processed fruits make up the key items that recorded impressive growth last year. Russia and the RoK are the province’s largest export markets for processed fruits.
