TAFISHCO to create a solid linkage in pangasius production

In early June 2011, Thuan An Production Trading and Service Company (TAFISHCO) has organized a meeting to discuss about the linkage in pangasius production. In which, the company plans to apply a vertical linkage in pangasius production across An Giang – a province in Mekong Delta – with an aim to control food safety, environment management, traceability, and to assure profits for all parties in the linkage and improve the value of Vietnam pangasius, Nguyen Thi Hue Trinh – TAFISHCO’s General Director said.

The new linkage is expected to make up of 18 members, including processing plants, pangasius suppliers, hatcheries, feed suppliers. At the meeting, parties approved the official rules, elected the Board of Management and Board of Supervisors, and signed joint agreements.

According to Mrs. Trinh, the export result depends much on raw pangasius supply and its quality. Therefore, apart from establishing and remaining the coherent pangasius linkage, TAFISHCO will further promote export of value-added products and expand other products like fish meal and fish oil. Currently, the company is interested in the U.S. market because this is a potential market for its pangasius products.

In the first five months of 2011, TAFISHCO maintained its export growth with the rise of 45 percent in both volume and value. The company had exported over 3,300 MT of finished products, gaining US$11.7 million from pangasius fillets and US$4 million from fish meal.
