Cargill says will help boost sales of tra fish stateside   2010-06-16 - VietNamNet/SGT

The U.S.-invested Cargill Vietnam said on Monday it would be willing to promote the sale of Vietnam’s tra fish in the U.S. given the food processing and trading group’s extensive network stateside.

The group’s Vice President for Corporate Affairs in the Asia-Pacific region, Bruce W. Blakeman, told Dong Nai Province’s vice chairman Tran Minh Phuc during a courtesy call that Cargill would find ways to allow tra fish to penetrate the U.S. more easily.

He said he would raise the proposal at a meeting in Hanoi on Tuesday with the ministries of Trade and Industry, Finance, and Agriculture.

Cargill could guarantee the quality of Vietnam’s tra fish fillets, and given the group’s distribution network and its prestige, Cargill could help open the market wider for the Vietnamese produce.

Blakeman is in Vietnam to address several issues relating to Cargill investments in Vietnam, including new regulations on labeling for genetically-modified products in the country, pricing regulations, as well as the introduction of more Cargill products on the Vietnamese market.

Cargill also seeks permission for launching its commercial activity in Vietnam, including the distribution of such products as steel, flavoring products and additives for animal feed production.

Chanh Truong, board chairman of Cargill Vietnam and chief representative of Cargill International Trading Pte., said Cargill was willing to help in exchange for local authorities’ support to launch more Cargill products in Vietnam.

Cargill first established its presence in Vietnam in 1995, and has ever since opened six animal fee processing plants in the country with combined output of 720,000 tons a year.
