HCM CITY — The TTC Sugar Corporation has received organic certification for its sugarcane and sugar from Control Union Vietnam’s managing director Richard de Boer.
To invest in organic raw materials that meet global standards, TTC has zoned 62ha out of over 200ha of land in Biên Giới (Border) Sugarcane Farm in Tây Ninh Province.
The Thành Thành Công Tây Ninh Joint Stock Company worked with Control Union and Peterson Consultancy, international inspection and certification organisations, to invest in producing the first organic sugar in Việt Nam and to assess the certification for meeting global organic standards.
In another development, TTC Sugar Corporation and the US’s John Deere have signed an agency contract which enables TTC to become an official distribution agent of John Deere agricultural equipment in the Vietnamese market.
As one of the key business segments of TTC Group, the sugar segment is active in being innovative and improving productivity, especially in the field of mechanisation in production.
In addition to increasing productivity, speeding up the mechanisation in sugarcane cultivation helps TTC Group as well as other sugar companies save labour and production costs, contributing significantly to improving business efficiency. — VNS
