Vinamilk Goes Organic

Vinamilk, Vietnam's largest dairy producer, is going organic.

The firm announced last week that it had recently imported 220 certified organic cows from abroad, reports VOV.

These cows will be used to produce organic dairy products, meaning the cows will be fed no chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides, growth hormones or genetically modified produce.

According to Vinamilk's director of marketing Phan Minh Tien, the company's USDA-certified organic dairy will allow Vinamilk to double its profits per gallon, as organic milk sells at a higher price and its prices are more stable than regular cow's milk.

The company, one of Vietnam's most valuable, has been publicly traded on the HCMC Stock Exchange since 2006 and was worth nearly US$5 billion at the end of 2015.
