For My Phuong Food, this is a market signal shipment, and it is expected that this shipment will open up more opportunities for the product to access this huge market.

The system provides online traceability solutions to help businesses, cooperatives and farmer households update information about product origin, including general information in, an electronic diary during cultivation, production, processing, transportation, and distribution.
