HCM CITY — Anova Farm Joint Stock Company, a member of the Anova Group, on October 10 received a Global G.A.P certificate for its pig for meat farm from Control Union, an international inspection and certification body.

It is the first farm raising pigs for meat in Việt Nam to get the certification.

To qualify, farms must meet 100 per cent of 143 major “musts”, 95 per cent of 69 minor ones and 36 recommendations through self-assessment as well as inspections and checks by the Control Union.

Pig farms with Global G.A.P certification will ensure food safety, traceability, workers’ and animals’ welfare and environmental protection and preserve bio-diversity.

The certification is valid for one year, and farms will be audited every subsequent year through regular and surprise inspections.

Tôn Văn Tân, general director of Anova Farm, said: “We are committed to providing customers with quality and safe pork and clear traceability. At the same time, Anova Farm aims to develop sustainable livestock production, raising standards in the livestock and food industry.”

Đặng Anh Tuấn of Control Union in Việt Nam said some 200 farms in Việt Nam have Global G.A.P certification, mainly fruit, vegetable, rice, shrimp, and fish farms. — VNS
