Sooksunt Jiumjaiswanglerg, President of CP Vietnam, said he would appoint a senior executive of the company to speak on this topic at a meat conference to be held at the event. 

“Meat processors in Vietnam should collaborate with each other in order to set strong standards on quality and safety to ensure consumers are confident in our products. As we’ve been in the meat processing business for a long time, we’d like to share our experiences with our friends in the industry,” he said.

Fully integrated, CP Vietnam operates from grain planting to feed milling, livestock farming, meat processing and retailing.

“A main goal of our business in Vietnam is to support livestock farmers. Therefore, we will continue to expand our farming business and produce safe and quality meat products for the nation,” said Mr. Sooksunt.

He said CP Vietnam is also willing to be a business partner with fellow meat processors in Vietnam as a supplier of raw materials for them.

“Our farmers implement strict standards on food safety and we process their chickens with the state-of-the-art technology. So, we can ensure that you’ll consistently get raw meat that is safe and of high quality for further processing,” he said.

Mr. Sooksunt said meat processors in Vietnam should have a forum to discuss and tackle issues that could pose threats to the country’s meat processing industry.

He said the opening of markets among ASEAN nations under the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 could result in massive imports of meat products into Vietnam and seriously affect the local meat processing industry.

“It’s a good idea that meat processors in Vietnam set up an association of their own. The Vietmeat forum would be a good place to discuss on this issue and I’m glad to host the discussion by myself,” said Mr. Sooksunt. 

The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) also agreed to support the Vietnam meat processing industry forum that will be held during Vietstock 2014 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Dr. Vu Tien Loc, VCCI’s Chairman and President, said Vietnam is a huge market for processed meat products. The forum, which will bring together CEOs of key meat processors in the country, will be a starting point for the industry to collaborate in developing their products and markets in the future.

Vietmeat is a one-stop forum focusing on the needs of the meat industry – from production, processing and packaging, right to the plate.

Organised by UBM Asia, the Vietmeat forum makes its debut in 2014 and will be co-located with Vietstock 2014 – Vietnam’s Premier International Feed, Livestock and Meat Industry Show. The events will be held from 15-17 October, 2014 at the Saigon Exhibition & Conference Centre (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

With over 3,000 cross-platform exhibitors, this was the highest quality exhibition in China focusing on the health food, functional supplements, nutraceuticals, food & beverage ingredients, and pharmaceutical industries. Together with the co-located shows, HNC provided participants not only a global gathering of the health industry, but an industry chain platform from ingredients to finished products.  

The 2014 edition was attended by 63,331 visitors, 10% more than the previous year, with international visitors from 131 countries. According to the post-event survey, 81% of international visitors thought the show was important to their business; 92% thought the visiting experience was great and 73% were sure of visiting the show again in 2015.

This year, the total exhibiting area for food shows exceeded 18,833 sqm, and featured 918 exhibitors with 112 international exhibitors from the USA, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Korea, and Brazil. The post-survey also showed that 80% of international exhibitors thought their exhibiting experience was excellent or good, 81% would recommend the show to their colleagues and 57% said the show met their expectations.
