The Dong Nai Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Branch said Koyu & Unitek’s Japan shipments are likely to help more local company to enter the choosy market of about 100 million people. The southern province of Dong Nai is home to 16 million farmed chickens
The main goal of the three-year campaign (2016- 2019) is to increase exports of Vietnamese poultry to the target markets and deepen knowledge of the quality, taste value and production standards there.
Japan is famous for its quality poultry as a result of breeding based on its stringent regulations and the care given to every element of the food chain.
As part of efforts to introduce and promote Vietnamese poultry in Japan, several companies are making their effort to produce best products for exporting.
