Hanoi (VNA) -
 A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the Business Association of High Quality Vietnamese Products and the Netherlands-based GMP  International and Business Support and Application Services Limited Company (BSAS).

The agreement is aimed at enhancing the capacity of managing the animal feed supply chain for Vietnamese firms.

This was among several efforts to help Vietnamese food companies produce safe meat products by using safe animal feed, association chairwoman Vu Kim Hanh said.

Accordingly, GMP International will provide support to the association and BSAS to enhance capacity for the Vietnamese animal feed supply chain, which will contribute to ensuring food hygiene and safety in animal husbandry.

Nguyen Van Ngoc, deputy chairman of the Southeastern Animal Husbandry Association, said hygiene and safety remained a headache in Vietnam.

GMP International is an international non-profit organisation that promotes safety in feed production.

Its GPM Feed Certification has more than 16,940 participating companies worldwide.-VNA
