HCM CITY— HCM City’s Department of Food Safety Management and Sóc Trăng Province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development held a signing ceremony recently to sell the latter’s agricultural and aquatic products to those involved in a food-safety supply chain to ensure food safety.
The quality of products would be ensured from the first stage (cultivation, husbandry, gathering and exploiting) to the final stage (slaughtering, processing and trading).
By the end of 2019, they expect all agricultural and aquatic products from Sóc Trăng Province sold in HCM City to be controlled via such food-safety chains.
Phạm Khánh Phong Lan, head of the city’s Food Safety Management, said the department had encouraged enterprises to join the city’s food-safety supply chain.
The department will also help enterprises advertise their products and access the city’s market through distribution systems. — VNS
