The Bien Dong Trade and Investment Joint Stock Company has agreed in principle with a Korean food company to sell 2,000 tonnes of pork per year.

This is being done to grasp opportunities to export pork to the South Korean market, Vu Trong Nghia, director of the Nam Dinh Province-based company, was quoted as saying by the Vietnam News Agency on Wednesday.

He said that the company has also inked a Memorandum of Understanding with Japan’s Minami Kyushu University on co-operation in developing agriculture and transferring technologies to process food.

It has completed the building of a clean food processing and green breeding complex, while a slaughtering plant with a capacity of 300 pigs per hour and a cold storage with South Korean technology are due to be put into operation in November 2017.

The company has two safe pig raising farms in the northern province of Nam Dinh. It has connected with the high-quality livestock breeding centre at Vietnam National University of Agriculture to acquire advanced technology for production.

Nghia said through the VIETGO Company, his firm has received orders of importing around 9,000 tonnes of pork for the first year from Korean businesses.

He hoped the State management agencies will soon open an export market for Vietnamese pork products. — VNS
