Hanoi (VNA) – The Egg Summit 2017 is taking place in Hanoi for the first time from October 23-25, gathering 120 businesses in the poultry farming industry from 30 countries and territories.

The summit, the second of its kind in the world, was organised by the Japanese ISE Foods Company with support from the Embassy of Japan and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). ISE Foods is one of Japanese largest breeding enterprises, which began expanding its brand name to the US in 1980.

At the summit, the businesses discussed and shared experiences over efficient egg production systems, epidemic disease control and quality management. ISE also introduced its egg production chain to the businesses, aimed at providing more high-quality eggs to consumers. 

In Vietnam, ISE Foods hopes to cooperate with Vietnamese partners to produce clean and safe eggs.

The first Egg Summit was held in 2015 in Tokyo with representation from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Foreign Minister, Agriculture Minister and other high-level officials of the Japanese Government.-VNA
