Vietnam Exports First Batch of Chicken to Japan

Posted: Thursday, September 21, 2017

The first batch of Vietnamese chicken was exported to Japan. This is considered an important milestone in Vietnam's livestock sector and a recognition of the sector's efforts, and is expected to open up more export opportunities for Vietnamese fowls.

This first export shipment is the effort of the closed production chain, from breeding, feeding and farming to slaughter and distribution, formed by Bel Ga, Hung Nhon, De Heus and Koyo & Unitek. Chicken quality meets high quality requirements in Japan.

Japan is the most demanding market for agricultural products and foodstuffs. Therefore, the sense is that this is not merely another shipment, but that it opens up new prospects. “Following this shipment will be eggs, pork and other foods,” said Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong.

Every year Vietnam produces 30 million pigs, 300 million fowls and 500,000 dairy cows to turn out 5.2 million tonnes of meat. The per capita output is 60 kg of meat, 100 eggs, 10 litres of milk and 80 kg of fish. Vietnam not only has enough supply of food for domestic demand, but still has some for export, Mr Cuong said.
