The Nguyen Ho quail breeding farm and a fruit exporter in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang have joined hands to export 12 million canned quail eggs to Japan from late 2013 to date.

Currently, the Nguyen Ho Farm and Tien Giang Food Corp exports 2 million canned quail eggs a month to Japan.
This is a result of four-year effort to meet all requirements of the strict market, said Tran Nguyen Ho, the owner of the farm.
There is a huge demand for canned quail eggs in Japan, and his farm is the only Vietnamese facility that meets the Japanese partner’s strict requirements, he added.
One of the requirements is that the yolk should be exactly in the middle of the egg rather than on the side, Ho noted.
With over 60,000 quails, the Nguyen Ho farm can produce over 100,000 eggs per day to provide for the domestic market, earning 1.2 billion VND (57,000 USD) per month.
