International standards put more cash in exporter's coffers

VIET NAM - The An Giang Seafood Export and Import Joint Stock Company (Agifish) has record rapid growth in recent years thanks largely to its application of internationally recognised food hygiene and safety standards.

Primarily a catfish processor, Agifish's products accounted for 70 percent of Viet Nam's total seafood export to the US before the anti-dumping taxes were applied to the country's exporters.

Vo Phuoc Hung, an official from Agifish, said the company continues to be one of the top catfish exporters in the country and has earned a foothold in giant markets like Western Europe, Russia, Asia, and Australia.

"Quality and food hygiene and safety were the top priorities of the company's development strategy in retaining our market share, " said Hung.
