Of the 500 firms, 41 of them are first-time winners and 42 have received annual recognition for 20 consecutive years, and 356 firms that have won for three consecutive years.

The winners were selected from a list of 678 companies based on surveys of nearly 20,000 households, individuals and retailers at trade promotion programs in 12 key provinces and cities around the country, held by the Business Association of High Quality Vietnamese Products.

They had to meet criteria related to product quality and origin, and comply with regulations on consumers and workers' rights, environmental protection and corporate social responsibility.

Most of the winners make sauces, spices, confectionery, non-alcoholic beverages, construction materials, electrical and household machines and dried foodstuff and instant food.

Over the past 20 years, 45 provinces and cities have their businesses presented with the Vietnamese High-quality Goods awards.

The awards presentation ceremony also marked the 20th anniversary of the Business Association of High Quality Vietnamese Products.
