The Ha Noi Office of New Rural Construction Programme Co-ordination has announced 595 new products that meet the standards of the One Commune-One Product (OCOP) programme that aims to promote local products, particularly those from agriculture.

With the newly certified products, Ha Noi now has 1,649 OCOP products, leading the country in the number of certified products.

The 595 new OCOP products are from 171 producers in 26 districts and towns across the city. Of those, 367 products are rated four stars and 228 products are rated three.

Nguyen Van Chi, Deputy Chief of the Standing Office of the city's New Rural Construction Programme Co-ordination Office said that the OCOP programme was an opportunity for stakeholders to develop product values, build brands, boost economic development and realise the goals of the new rural area building programme.

Previously, Ha Noi had assessed and classified 1,054 OCOP products of 216 producers. Of the products, four were recognised by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as 5-star products, 13 potential 5-star products, 731 four-star products and 306 three-star products. As a result, jobs have been created for around 5,000 people.

Besides evaluating and classifying OCOP products, Ha Noi has also paid special attention to and organised events, fairs, and seminars to promote OCOP products in both domestic and international markets.

By 2025, the city targets to complete the assessment and rating for at least 2,000 OCOP products.

Director of the Ha Noi's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Chu Phu My said that OCOP producers need to maintain and improve the quality, design, and packaging of products, and strengthen links between production and consumption.

Distribution units, trade centres, supermarkets, shops dealing in safe agricultural products, handicrafts shops, points of introduction and sale of OCOP products, and online trading floors must strengthen trade connections so that people could recognise OCOP brands and products.
