Lu Nguyen Xuan Vu, general director of Xuan Nguyen Group JSC, said that to achieve the OCOP certification, the firm’s products had undergone several evaluation stages conducted by the ministries of Health, Industry-Trade, Finance, and Natural Resources-Environment, while four-star rated certificates require other certification such as VietGAP, Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, and International Organization for Standardization.

Dinh Minh Hiep, director of the HCMC Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, emphasized the significance of the OCOP program, as it had been recognized by the Prime Minister as an important solution for not only increasing income in communes and districts and also promoting socio-economic development in localities. Therefore, collective efforts and support from relevant departments and agencies are crucial for the program’s development.

In 2021, HCMC recognized 27 products from 11 participants, including 21 products with a 4-star OCOP rating, six products with a 3-star OCOP rating, and one product proposed for evaluation and recognition by the central authorities with a 5-star rating.
