Vietnam issues ban on import of feeds with stimulant


By October 1 this year Vietnam will stop imports of feeds with stimulants. The ban will increase the country’s chance of producing safe products for both the local and global markets. According to Saigon GP Daily, the move is a directive from the Department of Livestock Production.

Vietnamese importers are responsible for ensuring that the industry is free of stimulants in feed by January 1, 2018. Importers must report the volume of feed imports and consumption of the kinds with stimulants bought before and how to sell them to the department. The ban aims to stop the use of stimulants in husbandry.
