According to plan, the province will conduct surveys to choose locations to build the chains focusing on key products such as vegetables, tea, coffee and dairy cows.
The plan will also assist 330 local residents to collect water and product samples at processing and package establishments to analyze norms on food safety, pilot implementation of food safety tracking software system and stamp products ensuring food safety.
The province has set a target to increase the consumption ratio of products in chains to 90 percent and implement food safety control in chains covering production, harvest, processing and consumption. From that, the province wants to gradually improve farming production value and product quality to promote its farming strength.
