In the last days of the year, along with the exciting atmosphere from Tet to spring, people in the West are also engaged in rice harvesting. The sound of the harvesters working at full speed in the fields brings joy to the people here.
To ensure the quality of Vietnamese rice grains, the time to transport rice from the field to the factory is up to 24 hours. And when entering the factory, all steps are automated. From growing the rice, storing, drying or separating impurities, peeling, separating rice…
When post-harvest processing capacity is improved, this is also when Vietnamese rice is “priced” in the world market. In the last months of the year, the price of Vietnamese rice surpassed Thai rice, the world leader. There was a time up to 438 USD / ton.
Vietnamese rice grains will be exported to many markets around the world. After about a year of negotiations, a Vietnamese brand of ST25 rice was officially imported and sold in Japanese supermarkets at the end of June. To enter the Japanese market, ST25 rice must meet 600 strict technical standards. This shows that Vietnam not only exports a lot of rice, but also exports delicious and clean rice.
Not just Japan, France, USA or Europe…Vietnamese rice grains have now made their way onto people’s trays in about 30 countries around the world.
Rice grains go a long way, bringing joy to those who enjoy them, and also happiness to those who make them.
