    Nov 14th, 2016

    At the conference, along with club VINACAS businesses trading cashew producers issued a statement of quality criteria "five no" and "3". Criterion 5 is not used flavoring in processing; no genetically modified products; no mold; no infections, insects and do not use forced labor. 3 there are products with natural colors; characteristic taste; high nutritional value.

    This year's theme is VINACAS choice is not random because Vietnam is currently ranked No. 1 in the world in the export of cashew as nearly 50% of the commercial value of cashew nuts in the world originated from Vietnam. Therefore, just a piece of information on food safety related to cashews will affect very large substrate manufacturing operations, import and export of domestic enterprises.

    Besides, VINACAS also want to "leapfrog" the trend of food safety a more rigorous day in countries that import grain from Vietnam. According VINACAS, present Vietnam has signed trade agreements with many countries, including, most tariffs for agricultural commodities are low and gradually to 0%. Therefore, the importing country will offer new criteria for food safety to protect domestic consumers. Therefore, should actively VINACAS with food safety issues in each product sold.

    According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the first 10 months of 2016 the number of individual exporters in Vietnam reached 291,000 tons, with exports of US $ 2.33 billion, an increase of nearly 6% in volume and 3% in value over the same period last year.
