VGP – Viet Nam still stays in the list of countries which are allowed to export fresh honey to the EU, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT).

The MoIT has reported that the EU had recognized the plan on residue management in made-in-Viet Nam honey exports. 

The European Commission's Directorate- General for Agriculture and Rural Development on July 31 released the recognition announcement on the plan.

A representative of the Directorate-General revealed that the plan was accurate and met the EC’s criteria on health protection for customers. 

The MoIT said it hoped that the decision would help Vietnamese exporters consolidate and expand their export market and boost prestige of Vietnamese honey in the EU in particular and the world in general.

Viet Nam is the sixth largest honey exporter in the world and the second largest in Asia. The country has recently shipped around 30,000 tons annually./.
