Son La exports first shipment of mangoes to China


ABO/VGP - Located in the northern province of Son La, Yen Chau district province exported its first shipment of 30 tons of mangoes, heading to to China through official channels on May 11.

The district has 2,700 ha dedicated to mango production, including 170 ha that have been granted area codes to export mango to foreign markets and nearly 130 hectares being provided with VietGAP certificates.

Director of Chieng Hac Agricultural Cooperative Ha Van Son said that his cooperative was delighted to ship the first batch of Yen Chau mango to China and the fruit was appreciated by the partner.

Mr. Son noted that his cooperative has always paid great attention to the quality of the fruit and the quality of this shipment was recognised by the Chinese partner.

It is anticipated that this year will see an estimated 13,000 tons of mangoes harvested, of which more than 3,200 tons meeting standards for export.

Most notably, Yen Chau’s green mangoes have been purchased by an array of businesses specifically for the purpose of exporting them to China via official channels due to their high quality.

Trinh Van Thang, director of Thien Anh company based in Lao Cai province said that this is the first year that his company went to Yen Chau to buy mango and saw that the local fruit met high requirements in terms of quality.

He noted that the company has order 1,000 tons for Yen Chau’s mangoes which will be exported to Chinese supermarkets in the coming time.

This comes after Yen Chau district and Son La province have recently launched a range of trade promotion schemes aimed at increasing the consumption of fruit in both domestic and foreign markets.

Following this, many firms based both domestically and abroad, in addition to business partners, have gained a greater knowledge with regard to the brand of Yen Chau’s mango products.
