A conference was held in the northern mountainous province of Bac Kan on October 13 to announce the local specialty sticky rice brand, Khau Nua Lech Ngan Son.

The brand registration certificate was granted to the Ngan Son District Farmer’s Association under Decision No. 49729/QD-SHTT by the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam.

 This high-quality variety of rice is cultivated in only a few areas in Ngan Son district.

With the goal of expanding its cultivation area, improving its quality and building a brand name, the locality implemented a 24-month project in Ngan Son district from January 2014. Luu Ngoc Quyen, Deputy Director of the Northern Mountainous Agriculture and Forest Science Institute (NOMAFSI), has led the effort.

The project is being carried out in Thuong Quan, Thuan Mang, Thuong An, Bang Van and Coc Dan communes with a total area of more than 40 hectares. It will determine appropriate areas for cultivation, to produce the highest yield and quality.

The registration of the brand name Khau Nua Lech Ngan Son should help promote large-scale production of the rice variety and protect its trademark.

On the occasion, a workshop was organised to review the implementation of the project and discuss ways to develop the brand in the future.-VNA
