(HBO) – Production planning for orange production of northern Hoa Binh province is large but the province is yet to have effective solutions on consumption. As the orange’s consumption market depends on traders, the price the province’s specialty is low and unstable.
In addition, the Cao Phong One Member Company Limited with its key
role in orange production has not conducted its business restructuring and
production under VietGap standards. The fight against fake and imitate goods is
facing many difficulties while there are intermediary stages in the fruit value
chain. Those are among problems in management on Cao Phong orange’s
The Ha Phong Agriculture and Services Cooperative (Cao Phong district) carried
out orange production under VietGap standards and stuck stamps of origin to
manage the products.
Cao Phong district is home to more than 2,800ha of citrus trees, including
1,900ha of orange, over 900ha of tangerine and grapefruit. The commercial
Orange growing area hit more than 1,200ha, while the
remaining area is in building process. Output in the 2017-18 crop reached over
33,000 tonnes. Production under VietGap standards in recent years has been
implemented in each household.
The district allocated 423.36 hectares of land to 315 households growing
oranges under VietGap standards. In 2014, nearly 47ha of land was granted to 15
families, while 100 households received 59.5ha of land in 2015. About 141.9ha
and 164.6ha of land were given to 120 and 87 families in 2016 and 2017,
respectively. Those households following VietGap standards were mainly in the communes
of Bac Phong, Dung Phong and Thu Phong, and Cao Phong township. There are two
organisations granted a certificate of geographical indication.
Besides, some businesses were pioneers in using stamps citing product origin,
namely Hung Phong company, Ha Phong and Anh Tu Cooperatives and Mr Bang in Cao
In the 2017-18 crop, those firms used more than 20,000 stamps of origin. The
district’s farmer association used about 7,000 stamps with bar code to track
origin. Besides, all 315 households received the certificate of VietGap
standards using bar code to manage and trace product origin.
Annual festivals and orange trade fairs have contributed to
introducing Cao Phong orange to visitors. The orange was granted the
certificate of "Famous brand name in 2016”, being among 10 well-received products,
which contributed to raising its value.
In the previous crop, the province discovered and strictly punished one
household making fake packaging of the Cao Phong One Member Limited Company,
confiscating more than 1,900 imitation wrappings. In 2017-18 crop, there is no
such case reported. The price of Cao Phong orange is stable and no other types
of orange is mixed with Cao Phong oranges./.
