Binh Phuoc (VNA) – Four cashew processors have been given the right to use the geographical indication (GI) of “Binh Phuoc” for their cashew products, in a move to help them prove the legitimacy of their products originating from the southern cashew hub of Vietnam.

The Binh Phuoc provincial Department of Science and Technology said it granted the certificates to the businesses on December 17. 

The approved “Binh Phuoc” firms consist of Son Thanh Production-Trading-Import-Export JSC based in Dong Xoai city; Ha My JSC in Dong Phu district; My Le Co., Ltd., in Phu Rieng district; and Hoang Phu Production Co., Ltd., in Loc Ninh district.

In March this year, the National Office of Intellectual Property issued the GI certificate on Binh Phuoc cashew nuts for the province.

Binh Phuoc, considered the “cashew capital” of Vietnam, has over 150,000ha of cashew farming, accounting for 50 percent of the country’s total cashew area.

It is currently home to over 200 cashew businesses and 400 cashew processing facilities. Local cashew products have been exported to 25 countries and territories. –VNA
