Montri Suwanposri added that C.P in Thailand is the leading firm exporting chicken meat to Japan for years with the quantity of five million a week.

There has been an increase in poutry meat orders lately because many countries banned import chicken from Brazil , an exporter of chicken to Japan, after food safety scandal. These countries switched to import chicken meat from Asian countries especially Thailand.

At present, prices of poultry in hi-tech farms in Vietnam is similar to chicken prices in other Asian countries, accordingly, C.P Thailand will share its orders with Vietnamese firms and C.P Vietnam has planned to sell chicken meat to Japan in 2019.

In 2017, Vietnam’s livestock sector marked its new stage when Koyu & Unitek shipped its first batch of chicken meat to Japan which is considered a difficult market with tough restrictions. Monthly, shipment of the meat is around 200 tons while the demand is buoyant with 300 tons a month.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Animal Health Department. The shipment is the fruit of two sides’ talks in 2016. The Department of Animal Health studied the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE)’s regulations carefully before discussing with Japanese counterpart.

Japan agreed to cut some requirements on chicken made in Vietnam and used only OIE standards such as: the animal raised in farms quarantined for diseases; production chains in manufacturers which meet Japan’s veterinary requirements, the national measures against diseases on poultry as well as food safety supervision plan on chicken for export.

Therefore, after a long pause because of fierce competition with frozen chicken meat, poultry breeding revived. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said it is result of switching from small raising in households to raising in farms with adoption of hi-tech to prevent diseases.

The quantity of farms increased from 9,300 farms in 2013 to 9,900 farms in 2014. In 2016, around 22,000 farms were set up in the country.

Director of Ba Huan Company Ms. Pham Thi Huan said that thanks to hi-tech adoption in breeding, costs of breeding is down; farmers can earn profit from breeding.

Truong Chi Thien from Vinh Thanh Dat Company said that prices of eggs in Vietnam are equal in many countries; therefore, other countries’ eggs will have no chance for competition in Vietnam.

Deputy chairman of Poultry Association in the Southeast region Vietnam Nguyen Van Ngoc said that price of a pack of ten eggs went upVND3,000 – 4,000 ( or VND16,000 a pack of ten) , lower that other countries and at average compared to the world. No importer has imported eggs so far, said Ms. Huan.
Meantime, if the government just allows import of whole frozen chick, foreign chicken can’t beat with local’s ; however, at present, importers just imported low parts of a waterfowl such as thigh, legs, and wings making local farmers in despair.

The Department of Animal Health said that in 2017 some more firms namely Ba Huan Company, DTK Company, Thanh Duc Company, C. P Vietnam, DABACO, Cau Tre proposed the department helping to finish paper works to sell fresh eggs to South Korea, ASEAN.

The Department is helping Koyu & Unitek, C.P Vietnam to sell processed chicken meat to EU, Mexico, Mongolia, Myanmar, Iraq, China, and Singapore. Additionally, the department supports Bel Ga (Bel Chicken) to sell bred eggs and poultry to Myanmar, Lao and Cambodia.
