Over the past years, Hoa Binh has issued many documents regarding food safety in the agro-forestry-fisheries sector, and agricultural restructuring.

 Farmers in Ba Hang Doi town in Lac Thuy district grow dragon fruit following VietGAP standards.

Binh Son Agricultural and Trade Service Cooperative in Kham hamlet, Binh Son commune, Kim Boi district, has successfully put in place a safe vegetable production model.

With 13 hectares of zucchini, pumpkin, and cucumber, the cooperative has seriously complied with VietGAP standards, using organic fertilizers and microbial pesticides, which have helped raise its profits by 20-30% as compared with traditional farming methods.

The cooperative has also partnered with Sakata Company in sales and another in seed supply, according to its Director Nguyen Thi Thu Hoai.

Many other cooperatives, businesses, and households in the province have also followed the model as VietGAP products are widely favored by consumers, and have stable prices.

In the first half of this year, the provincial sub-department of quality management of agro-forestry-aquatic products granted VietGAP and GlobalGAP certificates to 142 facilities, and supported 20 others to join the pork production and consumption chain in Hoa Binh city.

The province has also paid attention to brand building and trade promotion. During the six-month period, 147 businesses and cooperatives were assisted to participate in such programmes both at home and abroad.

Meanwhile, local products under the "One Commune – One Product” (OCOP) program have been put up for sale at the traceability portal https://hb.check.net.vn.

Le Minh Thuy, head of the sub-department, said the good agricultural production models have contributed to boosting food processing and local socio-economic development, especially in ethnic minority-inhabited areas.

The province will roll out more projects, plans, programs, mechanisms, and policies to support organizations and individuals investing in agriculture, and rural areas, upgrade infrastructure, build and expand production and consumption chains, and continue with promotion activities, the official said./.
