Vietnam’s export fruits receive warnings due to surveillance restrictions

August 25, 2023

HCMC – Insufficient management on planting area codes and packaging agents has led to consistent warnings being issued to Vietnamese fruits by exporting countries. Despite the significant number of certified planting area and packaging facility codes, the surveillance rates in certain provinces, such as Dong Thap, Son La, Hoa Binh, Gia Lai and Dong Nai, only reach 10% of the certified codes. Between 2022 and the end of July 2023, out of the 292 production unit codes and 68 packaging facility codes under surveillance, 13 planting area codes and 30 packaging facility codes in Bac Giang, Dak Nong, Dong Thap, and Son La had been revoked. In recent times, Vietnamese fruits have encountered numerous warnings from exporting countries due to their failure to meet clients’ standards. The primary reason for this inadequacy is the lack of proper surveillance on production unit and packaging facility codes.
