Hoa Binh exports first batch of Son Thuy fresh longan to Europe

The Hoa Binh Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, in collaboration with the Kim Boi People’s Committee and FUSA Organic Agriculture Joint Stock Company, has exported the first shipment of 1 ton of fresh longan to the EU market.

Earlier, in 2016, Son Thuy longan was granted protection by the National Office of Intellectual Property. After that, a series of certifications on food safety (2016), VietGAP (2019), and OCOP (2020) have helped the Son Thuy brand reach further to domestic and international markets.

Son Thuy longan is also the first product of Hoa Binh to be granted a planting area code in 2019 and this is a “passport” for this product to be officially exported to the international market, especially the EU.

The Hoa Binh Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said that all the technical requirements set by the EU market for fresh fruit and vegetable products have been strictly completed by Son Thuy longan growers from 2019 to now.

According to the analysis results at the laboratory designated under EU standards, 3 samples of Son Thuy longan all met the technical requirements of 821 EU food safety testing criteria.

Currently, the area of longan in Xuan Thuy commune is nearly 200 hectares, and the Son Thuy agricultural service cooperative has 34 hectares.

Hoa Binh has set a target of exporting 50 tons of Son Thuy longan to the EU market until the end of the longan crop in 2022./.
