This year up to July 12, Koyu & Unitex Ltd Co. shipped 600 tonnes of the meat to Japan.

Earlier in late 2017, it installed two additional processing lines to increase capacity and diversify products for export. Also, CP Vietnam Jsc and Leow Casing Vietnam Ltd Co submitted their export plans and asked the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Department of Animal Health to negotiate with the Japanese Department of Animal Health on exporting processed chicken and hotdog cases made from lamb and pig guts to Japan.

On May 14, the Japanese side sent a letter to the Vietnamese Department of Animal Health approving vet hygiene conditions and quarantine certificates for processed chicken meat and the hotdog cases.

From May 27 – June 2, a delegation of Japanese Department of Animal Health took a fact-finding trip to Vietnamese processors whose products are destined for Japan. It also allowed Koyu & Unitek to expand exports of poultry meat and processed products to the country from June 15.

It is considering CP Vietnam’s and Leow Casing’s applications.

Besides chicken, Deputy head of the Vietnamese Department of Animal Health Dam Xuan Thanh said more support will also be given to pork manufacturing chains to prevent epidemics such as foot-and-mouth disease and hog cholera.

The department will also promote trade and work with authorities of China, Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea, Australia, Russia, Mexico and Saudi Arabia to lift bans on importing animals and their products, he said.
