Addressing the event, the Executive Director at AmCham Viet Nam, Mary Tarnowka, said that as Viet Nam’s population continues to surge, with rising income, purchasing power, and demand for new food and beverage markets, the issues of sustainability and food safety management standards are critically important.

That discussions and knowledge-sharing at the forum would promote improved regulations based on sound science in line with international standards that ensure safe food and beverage products for Vietnamese consumers and the sustainability of economic growth, thus helping facilitate Viet Nam’s rapidly increasing food and beverage exports, she added.
