Processed products from chicken breast raised in the southern province of Dong Nai will be exported to the Japanese market for the first time this July.
This will be the first batch of products from chicken farms in Dong Nai and southeastern provinces to be shipped to the Japanese market, opening up big opportunities for a domestic chicken-raising industry currently faced with difficulties.
The Koyu & Unitek Co., Ltd., located at the Long Binh Industrial Zone in Dong Nai’s Bien Hoa city, together with eleven chicken farms in Dong Nai and neighbouring provinces, have prepared for the building of a production link chain since early 2016, which is capable of supplying 15 million chickens per year for breast meat to be processed and exported to Japan.
The company has also completed the construction of a slaughterhouse with a capacity of over 20,000 chickens per day.
Chickens raised for breast exports to Japan are raised in an integrated model, from baby chickens and care procedures to slaughtering and processing procedures, in accordance with partners’ strict standards. In particular, the Japanese side requires that no antibiotics be used in chicken meat and chicken farming diaries be written in service of origin traceability in the future.
Dong Nai’s veterinary sector has been building disease-free zones in ten communes in the districts of Long Thanh, Cam My, Xuan Loc and Tan Phu, which have chicken farms participating in the link chain.
