All the cows are fed 100 percent organic food. The farm must abide by three strict standards ensuring no use of bovine growth hormone, no pesticides, no antibiotic residue in milk.

At the ceremony, Vinamilk director general Mai Kieu Lien said that the farm’s inauguration not only contributed in stabilizing domestic material supply but also created faith and a foothold for Vietnamese milk brand names to develop in the world.
