HÀ NỘI — The Chinese General Administration of Customs (GAC) on Monday granted transaction codes to two Vietnamese companies to export dairy products to China, reported the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Department of Asia-Africa Markets.
Accordingly, Hanoimilk JSC was allowed to ship fermented and flavoured fermented milk to China.
Meanwhile, BEL Vietnam Co Ltd could export other cheeses.
The GAC is also reviewing applications by NUTIFOOD to grant codes.
China has so far granted transaction codes to four Vietnamese companies and plants. Others include TH True Milk with sterilised and modified milk and Vinamilk with condensed milk.
China is the biggest milk importer in the world. Last year, the country imported 39.43 million tonnes of milk and milk products. Of which, imported fresh milk was about 750,000 tonnes and milk powder was 650,000 tonnes.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation predicted that the demand for milk and milk products of this market would still increase at around 45 per cent by 2025.
Many Vietnamese enterprises named in the list of dairy exported to the Chinese market showed that the growth in milk exports would increase in the future. — VNS
