3. CCIPV at the European Pork | the smart choice event
Head of Rep. Office in Vietnam Lan Phan joined the Viet Nam's session of the European Pork event this October at Sofitel HCMC. The occasion is a wonderful experience where European made pork is highlighted as the smart choice for all.
The EU is the second pork producer and the largest exporter of pork and pork products in the world. This was achieved thanks to their strong foundations of pig farming and utmost standards in sustainability, food safety, animal welfare, traceability, quality, and taste, features observed throughout the whole production process to ensure the interest and health of consumers
