HÀ NỘI — A wide selection of clean food products and specialties from different regions are on display at the Food and Food Safety Expo, which opened in Hà Nội on Monday.
The expo is being held by the Vietnamese Artists and Trademarks Association (VATA) at the Việt Nam Agricultural Exhibition Centre in Hà Nội’s Hoàng Quốc Việt Street till May 28. Themed “Say No to Dirty Food”, the expo has 200 participants who have on display safe food products and safe food processing technology.
The 200-odd stalls offer a variety of items such as cordyceps fungus, honey, forest mushroom, fish sauce, free-range chicken, coffee, gấc oil and black garlic, all from reliable suppliers such as certified companies and clean agricultural co-operatives across the country.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the fair, Lê Ngọc Dũng, president of VATA, said food safety was a big area of concern for the Party, the Government, and to all Vietnamese citizens.
Through the fair, businesses can showcase what they do to ensure food safety in production, work towards gaining a foothold in honest business, and provide information on food hygiene and safety, he said. It was recommended that businesses apply advanced quality management systems, and follow food safety standards promulgated by Việt Nam and international organisations.
At the expo, Hoàng Hải from HCM City-based Enjoy Life Việt Nam JSC introduced visitors and customers to its Aquaponics system – a model of growing fish and vegetables in the same pond. The company has attended the fair several times, but this is only the second time that it is introducing people to its Aquaponics system, Hải said. — VNS
