Vietnam determined to produce organic dairy products

Vietnam is working on the plan to produce organic dairy products as it is popular trend in the world.

Nguyen Dang Vang, President of the Vietnam Livestock Association, said that to produce organic dairy product, livestock must be allowed to graze on pasture, be fed organic certified feed (which may not include by products of animal slaughter), and that the animals will not be treated with drugs (although it is also illegal to withhold necessary drugs from a sick animal in order to maintain that animal's organic status).

Currently, some enterprises such as TH True Milk, Moc Chau, Vinamilk are able to breed organic livestock like mentioned above.  Imported powdered dairy products dominate 70 percent of the country’s market share. However, customers have worried about the quality of powdered dairy products.

Accordingly, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Vu Van Tam said that  to increase quality of milky products in Vietnam, the country should have around 500,000 milk cow to produce 1 million tons of milk per year.

Speaking at a conference of safe organic agricultural products held  by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Science and Technology lately, Thai Huong, chairwoman of TH Corporation said that Vietnam authority has not had standard of organic milk as well as organic agriculture produces, yet.

Nguyen Thanh Phong, head of the Food Administration of Vietnam under the Ministry of Health admitted that his administration has not worked on the matter, yet.

Nguyen Xuan Duong, deputy head of the Department of Husbandry, said that the country will have to encounter challenges in producing organic dairy and agricultural products because it is unavoidable trend in the globe.
