All kinds of imported fruit will be carefully checked as from September 2012.
This was stipulated in Circular 39 issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) with a view to ensuring food hygiene and safety in the country.
MARD Deputy Minister Bui Ba Bong said that all fruit imported into the Vietnamese market must have clear origin and meet quality requirements. He noted that some kinds of imported fruit have been discovered with a high rate of toxic chemical residue.
According to a recent report by the MARD’s Plant Protection Department, three out of 104 samples taken from Chinese fruits have showed a rate of toxic chemical residue, much higher than the permitted level.
