HCM CITY — The Việt Nam Nutrition Food JSC (NutiFood) has announced that its soymilk products are now available in 450 Walmart supermarkets across China, making it the first Vietnamese milk brand to be accepted by the US-based multinational retail chain.
According to Nutifood CEO Trần Thị Lệ, the company had to meet more than 250 strict criteria from Walmart, including those relating to material quality and production processes, transportation security, human resources policies, and social responsibility.
The success has helped Nutifood gain better access to China’s market of 1 billion people, who collectively consume up to 15 billion litres of soymilk each year - the largest amount worldwide.
In addition to the Chinese market, Nutifood’s products are also on the shelves of Walmart stores in the US.
Its Pedia Plus milk products were given the green light by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2018.
The company then entered into a partnership to build a dairy plant in Sweden producing organic goods to meet demand in Việt Nam and Europe. — VNS
