Hanoi (VNA) – Milk producer TH Group will launch a new line of organic milk products that are free of residues of pesticides, fertilizers, growth hormones, antibiotics and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The group plans to obtain a certificate for European-standard organic milk in December and have the new products verified as organic that meet the US Department of Agriculture (USAD)’s National Organic Programme (NOP) standards in June 2017.

Production of its organic milk products will be monitored under the ISO 22000:2005, 9007:2008 and Global Standard Food Safety (BRC) quality management systems.

TH Group, one of Vietnam's leading milk suppliers, owns the biggest fresh milk factory in Southeast Asia.

The group inked a deal with the authority of the Moscow region, Russia in October to invest 2.7 billion USD in hi-tech cattle farming and dairy production projects here.

Last year, it won three gold prizes at the Tasting Contest as part of the World Food Moscow 2015 exhibition held in September.

The crowned products included a nutritious supplemented Topkid Chocolate milk, Phytosterol-supplemented fresh milk and pasteurised milk.-VNA
