Miratorg Chairman said that the corporation can produce 500,000 ton pork per year with competitive prices totally meeting demand of Vietnam. He affirmed the corporation produces pork in a close production chain from breeding to slaughtering.
The first shipment of Russian pork will arrive in the Southeast Asian country next week as per schedule.
Stressing that high demand of pork in Vietnam is an opportunity for Miratorg to boost pork import, Minister Cuong said Vietnam can export fish and shrimp to Russia because Russian can’t breeding fish and shrimp or other agricultural products.
He expected that Miratorg will act as bridge to bring Vietnamese farm produce to Russia and sell pork to Vietnam.
