HÀ NỘI — Foodies in Hà Nội have the chance to enjoy the local cuisine of the northwest region when visiting the Week of Mường Khương mandarins and Lào Cai Province’s agricultural products which opened at Big C Thăng Long supermarket on Saturday.
Apart from Mường Khương mandarins, the trademark recognised by the National Office of Intellectual Property, Lào Cai’s co-operatives and businesses are displaying local specialities such as Séng Cù rice, Mường Khương chilli sauce, tea, honey, Thanh Sơn vermicelli, Múc grapefruit, turmeric starch, dried buffalo meat, wine, herbal medicines and more.
This is the first time the Week of Mường Khương mandarin and agricultural products of Lào Cai has been introduced in Hà Nội.
“The event is an opportunity to introduce agricultural products in Lào Cai Province in general and Mường Khương mandarins in particular to Hanoians. It also offers an opportunity to establish sustainable links between manufacturers and distributors, facilitating local enterprises to connect and develop markets, expand production along the value chain,” said Nguyễn Trường Giang, deputy head of the province’s Department of Industry and Trade.
At the event, the Big C Trade Centre and several Lào Cai agencies signed a memorandum of understanding on product sales.
The event will run through November 25.
This is part of a series of programmes organised by Big C in co-ordination with ministries and localities to support the promotion activities to introduce and build brands for agricultural products, specialities across regions and localities of Việt Nam. — VNS
