Vietnamese chicken to be shipped to Singapore, Hong Kong

Chicken wings, thighs and breasts of Koyu & Unitek Co., Ltd. based in Long Binh industrial park in the southern province of Dong Nai will hit the shelves of supermarkets in Singapore and China’s Hong Kong in the coming time.

According to the company’s General Director Jame Hieu, the firm’s products have passed rigorous standards, including food safety, disease-free poultry range, and influenza vaccine-free chicken, as well as legal procedures in the two markets.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Koyu & Unitek will sign contracts with its partners in November instead of in the middle of the year.

Some hundreds of tonnes of chicken products will be sold in the two markets for prices around 30 percent higher than those on the domestic market, he said, adding the company will look for new customers and expand shipments to other Asian countries and Europe.

In 2017, Koyu & Unitek was the first company in Vietnam to ship chicken to Japan. Around 350 tonnes of chicken are sold in the Japanese market each year.
Koyu & Unitek Co is a member of a supply chain that involves three other units that operate in the animal breeding and feed industry. Those companies are Bel Ga JSC, a joint venture of the Belgian Belgabroed Group and the Netherlands-based De Heus, Hung Nhon Group and De Heus.

The production chain has helped Vietnam produce clean poultry products that meet requirements from the Japanese market.
