The National OCOP Council will propose the authorities recognise 20 items as five-star “One Commune, One Product” (OCOP) products.

The products were selected from 43 entries submitted to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) by 12 cities and provinces, heard a meeting on Wednesday.

Among them include green tea and red tea products made by Phin Ho tea processing cooperative in Hoang Su Phi district of Ha Giang province; Le Gia shrimp paste made by Le Gia Food and Trading Service Co in Thanh Hoa Province and Bich Thao powdered coffee of Bich Thao Coffee Cooperative in Son La Province.

Earlier, the National OCOP Council established councils from the Ministries of Agriculture and Rural Development, Industry and Trade, and Health, that are in charge of assessing products under the OCOP programme.

MARD Deputy Minister Tran Thanh Nam said the recognition not only affirms the quality and brand of products at the national level but also opens up opportunities for them to gain a foothold at home and access foreign markets.

The OCOP programme has facilitated the development of products and contributed to creating jobs and raising income of rural residents, he added. — VNS
