The southern coastal province of Ba Ria–Vung Tau on October 25 announced the “Ba Ria Salt” brand in order to help consumers select the right product and protect farmers’ rights.

The province’s salt received its brand certificate from the Department of Intellectual Property, Standardisation and Metrology under the Ministry of Science and Technology.

The certification will enhance trade promotion, the effectiveness of quality management, and the product’s economic value.

Salt production in Ba Ria–Vung Tau is said to date back 160 years thanks to the intensity of its sunlight, wind and higher sea water salinity than other localities.-VNA
