These products have all been manufactured through stringent procedures from preliminary processing, boiling, and sterilisation. They have been packaged in line with export standards set by Herman Company of the Netherlands, the foreign importer.

Most notably, the packaging of these products has been carried out in line with the requirements set out by the European Union, meeting the bloc’s food safety standards.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Kim Boi has exported dozens of containers of roughly 300 tonnes of processed bamboo shoots to Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Australia since the beginning of the year.

Ngo Duc Sinh, general director of Kim Boi, said the firm will continue to export an additional 100 tonnes of processed bamboo shoots between now and the end of the year.

The province's agricultural sector has exported several farm products to the European market.
