HÀ NỘI — Korean strawberries have officially been licensed to be imported into Việt Nam by aT Centre Hà Nội, under the Korea Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
“In the context that Việt Nam is focusing on development of agriculture, food industry and diversification of food products for the people, the fact that Korean strawberry products are licensed for quarantine and officially imported into Việt Nam will help consumers gain access to high-quality, safe and healthy Korean agricultural products,” Kim Dong-kwan, representative of aT Centre Hà Nội, said.
Because of different climatic conditions, products with trade exchange potential between Việt Nam and Korea are diverse and abundant. In the last five years, the commercial transaction value of agriculture, fisheries and food between the two countries has increased two-fold, up to US$1.9 billion.
The aT Centre Hà Nội is responsible for the promotion of Korean agricultural and fishert products through advertising programmes, free trials, supporting Việtnamese importers and connecting enterprises of the two countries.
In Korea, strawberries are grown in smart farms with completely automated technology to minimise the use of fertilizers and ensure products are safe in accordance with the Good Agricultural Practice standard. — VNS
