The first Yen Bai Specialities Week 2018 in Ha Noi officially kicked off on Friday at the Big C Thang Long supermarket.

The event, which is in line with the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s programme on promotion of local specialty products and safe food production, aims to support production and trading of local businesses in the northern province of Yen Bai.

Among many Yen Bai’s specialty products displayed at the event are smoked buffalo meat, smoked pork meat, Sen Oranges, Gioi Phien vermicelli and dried bamboo shoots. A separate area will be designed for special agricultural products such as cinnamon tea, cinnamon oil, Dai Minh grapefruit, Tu Le rice, purple rice, xoi ngu sac (five-coloured sticky rice) and Le Pho taro.

All of these products are certified as safe food and are sold at reasonable prices.

Pham Trung Lan, deputy director of the Yen Bai Department of Industry and Trade, said: “This is one of the most important trade promotion activities of Yen Bai Province this year. This event provides an opportunity to introduce our local specialties to the capital city’s citizens, promoting the consumption and sustainable production of local products.”

He hoped through such events, local businesses can seek trading opportunities with Big C supermarkets.

The event, taking place in Big C’s 15 supermarkets in the north, will run through December 9.

Last week, 20 specialities from many northern mountainous provinces with clear origins and VietGap certification were introduced at the first Northwest and Northern Mountainous Provinces Specialties Week’ in Big C An Lac in HCM City. — VNS
