This is the province’s largest-ever event honouring Vietnamese products and has attracted the participation of more than 100 businesses from 16 cities and provinces nationwide, displaying local foods, beverages, farm produce, and handicrafts, among others.
According to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, the fair has opened up opportunities to bring prestigious Vietnamese products closer to local consumers.
Ta Minh Son, Director of Tu Son supermarket, said that the campaign has helped Vietnamese goods win the hearts and minds of domestic consumers. In the Tu Son supermarket, made-in-Vietnam products are now favoured over imported goods, he said.
A wide range of activities have been scheduled in the framework of the fair, comprising a competition to learn about the campaign, product testing, and the introduction of safe goods production.
The event will run until December 17.
