Chicken wings, thighs and breasts from Koyu & Unitek Co, Ltd based in Long Binh Industrial Park in the southern province of Dong Nai will soon hit the shelves of supermarkets in Singapore and China’s Hong Kong.

According to the company’s General Director James Hieu, the firm’s products have passed rigorous standards, including food safety, disease-free poultry range, and influenza vaccine-free chicken, as well as legal procedures in the two markets.

Koyu & Unitek will sign contracts with its partners in November instead of in the middle of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hundreds of tonnes of chicken products will be sold in the two markets for prices around 30 per cent higher than those on the domestic market, he said, adding the company will look for new customers and expand shipments to other Asian countries and Europe.

In 2017, Koyu & Unitek was the first company in Viet Nam to ship chicken to Japan. Around 350 tonnes of chicken are sold in the Japanese market each month.

The production chain has helped Viet Nam produce clean poultry products that meet requirements from the Japanese market. — VNS
