HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — The Vietnam Meat Industries Limited Company (Vissan), De Heus LLC and Fresh Studio Innovations Asia (DHFS-Safe Pork) on August 15 signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a safe and sustainable pork value chain in Viet Nam.

The parties will establish a safe supply chain from farming, slaughterhouse to finished products and distribution to the market, in accordance with TRACEPIG standards.

Under the agreement, products will be labelled with credible origins and will not contain antibiotic residues exceeding the restriction. They will also not be infected with pathogenic microorganisms.

All TRACEPIG products must comply animal welfare during the process of breeding and slaughtering.

TRACEPIG's set of standards were developed to guide all parties involved in the production chain to follow procedures to ensure the safety and traceability of all TRACEPIG products.

The ultimate aim of the project is to offer safe and traceable pork meat to Vietnamese consumers produced in a sustainable way.
