VIETNAM Vietnam saw the official establishment of Fish Sauce Association November 2020
The Vietnam Fish Sauce Association was finally established in Hanoi on 27 October, with founding members coming from various cities and provinces in the country.
They represent fish sauce manufacturers, traders, exporters and importers, scientists, managers and testers, of which there are 35 fish sauce processing establishments involved in exporting to more than 20 markets including the US, EU, Japan and South Korea.
Nguyen Thi Bíh Thuy, a representative of the association said the sales and production volume of fish sauce of the association’s founding members is already about 70% of the total sales and output of the Vietnamese fish sauce industry.
This establishment also marked an important development of the domestic fish sauce industry. Thuy said, “This is a house for all members to cooperate closely to affirm the position of Vietnamese fish sauce in the international market.” The association will also work on solving issues in processing and technology to ensure domestic fish sauce brands can meet international standards. According to Phug Duc Tien, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam has more than 783 fish sauce processing units and nearly 1,500 households producing fish sauce with a total processing capacity exceeding 250 million litres annually.
Most of the fish sauce manufactured is for domestic consumption, with only 35 fish sauce facilities exporting their products overseas. Investments in this sector is still low.
The Vietnam Fish Sauce Association was officially established under a decision by the Ministry of Home Affairs, which also aims to develop, build and modernise fish sauce production to ensure food safety.
