HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Two Vietnamese export products failed to meet Australian food standards under the Imported Food Inspection Scheme in October, said newly released reports of the Australian Department of Agriculture.

The products were a batch of cooked prawns of the Trang Khanh Seafood Company Ltd, which was found to contain higher amounts of standard plate count, and a batch of instant noodles of the Masan Food Joint Stock Company that contained E364ii, a substance which is not permitted.

Of the total 22 violations detected in October, two involved Vietnamese products.

The Australian department, which monitors food products to reduce the risk to public health, declared that the food items which failed to meet its standards will be banned from sale in the country, and will either be destroyed by the importer or re-exported to the country of origin.

It added that the future consignments of the products will continue to be monitored fully, till a history of compliance with rules is established.

The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) said that in the first eight months, Viet Nam's seafood exports to Australia significantly increased by 27.7 per cent over the same period last year, with prawn products comprising the largest component. — VNS
