Poland introduces clean fruits, vegetables, and meat to the Vietnamese market13/04/2023
On the afternoon of April 6 in Hanoi, the Promotion Center under the Polish Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in collaboration with the Association of Polish Slaughterhouses and Producers of Cold Meat, held a press conference to introduce the Polish Food Promotion Program of the European Union.
The European Union’s food promotion program, which runs from 2019 to 2023, aims to highlight Europe’s traditional and high-quality flavors through a variety of activities organized by two specialized Polish organizations: the Association of Polish Slaughterhouses and Producers of Cold Meat, and the National Union of Fruit and Vegetable Producers.
Speaking at the press conference, Justyna Pabian, the representative of the Polish embassy in Vietnam, said that the diplomatic relationship between Vietnam and Poland is thriving. Over the past six months, the two countries have made significant progress in various fields through visits by the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, and representatives from the Polish Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“Despite the significant impact of the pandemic, the trade volume between Vietnam and Poland increased by 12% in 2022. Economic cooperation between Vietnam and Poland is developing more and more, but it has not fully met the potential of both sides. Clearly, the real potential is still very large, and we all benefit from it. We are here to promote economic cooperation and trade between the two countries, especially in agriculture,” affirmed Justyna Pabian.
According to Justyna Pabian, the capital of Poland has many Vietnamese restaurants that bring surprises for Polish consumers. She hopes that Polish food will also bring new experiences to Vietnamese consumers.
Piotr Ziemann, Head of the Association of Polish Butchers and Producers of Meat, stated that this is the sixth time they have returned to Vietnam to promote products. At Vietnam Expo 2023, three Vietnamese partners expressed their interest in becoming distributors of frozen fruits from Poland in the Vietnamese market. This time, in addition to fruits and vegetables, Poland also wants to introduce and promote pork, beef, and poultry to Vietnamese consumers.
Emphasizing on the issue of quality, not using antibiotics and growth-promoting substances, Piotr Ziemann affirmed that 100% of Polish meat products are safe. “Currently, 83% of the beef produced in Poland is exported, and similarly, more than 60% of poultry and over 30% of pork are exported,” said Piotr Ziemann.
