EU to inspect Vietnam’s seafood production


Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said that from June 20 to 29, an EU delegation will inspect all steps involved with food safety in seafood production and business chains, including fishing vessels, fishing ports, aquaculture facilities, wholesale markets, and purchasing, pre-processing, preservation and processing facilities. Nguyen Nhu Tiep, Director of Vietnam’s National Agro, Forestry, Fisheries Quality Assurance Department, said EU is one of the major export markets for Vietnamese seafood products.

Results of the inspection will have a direct impact on seafood production and business of many enterprises, and the country’s seafood export value to the region as well as to other countries. “Maintaining the reputation and quality of Vietnamese seafood products in the EU market is important and this determines acceptance by other markets as well,” he said.
