TH Milk Joint Stock Company has become the first Vietnamese firm to receive approval from the General Administration of Customs of China to export dairy products to China.

China has granted transaction codes to TH Milk’s sterilised and modified milk products, reported the Vietnamese Embassy in China as saying.

The Chinese General Administration of Customs will continue considering applications from other Vietnamese companies, said the embassy.

Earlier last week, the General Administration of Customs of China announced granting official permission to the import of Vietnamese dairy products and detailing requirements for quarantine and quality checks of those products.

Nguyen Van Long, deputy director of the Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said that five Vietnamese firms have submitted dossiers to get permission to export milk to China. Currently, Viet Nam has 18 companies registered to sell dairy products to 17 foreign markets.

Viet Nam aims to increase dairy export revenue to the neighbour from US$120 million to $300 million in 2020. — VNS
