The provincial authorities said the company’s pork quality has met requirements of the Department of Animal Health under the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

On February 19, the MARD officially announced the African swine fever outbreak. As of mid-December, nearly 6 million pigs weighing over 342,800 tonnes were culled, accounting for nearly 9 percent of the total pig output nationwide.

The outbreak pushed up pork prices during the remainder of this year.
