The Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk) said it has been licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to export its products to the US.

According to the US regulations on food safety and anti-bioterrorism, food producers, who want to have their products consumed in the US , must register with FDA.

FDA’s assessment and license granting are initial obligatory procedures for foreign enterprises to ship commodities to the country.

FDA may suddenly inspect any Vinamilk production facility and this process takes place very strictly.

Vinamilk products, mainly powdered milk, baby food, condensed milk, fresh milk, soya milk and fruit milk, have so far been exported to several countries, including Australia , Canada , Russia , Japan , Thailand and Middle Eastern nations.

The company’s export turnover reached almost 180 million USD in 2012 and the figure is 92 million USD in the first two quarters of this year.-VNA
