Quang Ninh OCOP (One Community, One Product) Fair has been held at Ha Dong MM Mega Market in Ha Dong District, Ha Noi, attracting attention from locals living nearby.

The event was launched by Ha Noi Department of Industry and Trade on December 10 running until December 14.

At the opening ceremony, Tran Thi Phuong Lan, acting Director of the Ha Noi Department of Industry and Trade, said that the event aimed to elevate the production value and raise brand awareness for Quang Ninh’s OCOP products, promoting OCOP products to consumers in domestic and foreign markets.

Over 100 OCOP and seafood products from Quang Ninh Province are brought were sold at the fair.

During the event, distributors, especially the MM Mega Market system in Viet Nam, supported consultation on models and procedures for participating units to bring good quality products into distribution channels.

The Department asked enterprises participating in the fair to fully prepare and ensure products’ quality and clear origin, with reasonable prices and attractive promotions, as well as comply with the law.

In addition, amid the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises must strictly implement and follow COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

Visiting the fair on the last day of the event, Dao Thi Kim Oanh, a retiree said that she really enjoyed the event.

“Due to social distancing orders and travel restrictions, I can’t travel anywhere for vacation this year. It was really boring just staying at home. I feel like I am at the Quang Ninh market,” she said.

“The fair is really interesting. I can buy Quang Ninh products with OCOP certification at reasonable prices. I bought the squid cake here at about 20 per cent cheaper than I did when I was Quang Ninh.

“The squid cake is really good, so I came back to buy again and ask for the seller's contact because today is the last day.”

“Besides the squid cake, I also liked the salted shredded meat made from mantis shrimp.”

After more than seven years of establishment and development, Quang Ninh has developed 500 OCOP products, of which 238 have been received at national and provincial levels.
