Exporting Vietnamese Tet

QĐND – Thursday, January 06, 2011, 21:19 (GMT+7)

Pickled onions, egg plants, green square cakes etc. were exported to Europe, Japan, and the U.S etc. bringing traditional Tet (Lunar New Year) to overseas Vietnamese.

And such Vietnamese foods are become annual export goods.

Businesses working in this special export industry say that these goods have found their firm positions in supermarkets and shops, instead of small bazaars for only the Vietnamese, as was previously the case.

30 tonnes of square cakes from Tran Gia Square Cake Manufacturer have been exported to France and the U.S.A. to serve the Tet demand of overseas Vietnamese there. Mr. Tran Thanh Toan, Tran Gia owner said that the order this year doubled compared to last year. Moreover, the order must be made a month in advance so that the business can have time to prepare.

As the Lunar New Year is coming, the two workshops of the company in Bien Hoa City and Vinh Cuu District, Dong Nai Province, have to mobilise 500 workers to meet the demand.

To keep the original and special flavours of the cakes, every step in the process has been carefully done, from choosing the leaves, rice and meat. Thanks to the good quality of the products, Tran Gia also coordinates with confectionery shops to export candies and jams.

Not only square cakes, jams and other Tet specialties from all walks of life in Vietnam have been exported overseas, but also things like flapjacks, pickled shrimps, pickled garlic etc. have also been exported to markets in the U.S.A., Japan and European countries.

Mrs. Pham Thi Ngoc Lien, owner of Ngoc Lien Food Processing Company in Ho Chi Minh City, which specialises in producing sweet and sour foods, said that her company has exported three containers of the above foods to the U.S.A. She also revealed that the demand for the foods in this season is high and her company is working at full capacity to meet the demand.

 Many other Vietnamese companies are also operating at their best to serve the demand of the overseas Vietnamese as Tet is coming.

Vietnamese people, from every place in the world, usually celebrate Tet with foods which bear special traditional flavours of their origin country.
