Why Invest in Food and Beverage Industry in Vietnam

Consumption of food and drink products accounts for about 15 percent of Vietnamese GDP, and this percentage is forecast to rise in the future.

Furthermore, Vietnam is expected to become one of the top 3 Asian countries by 2020. As it is supposed that the F&B industry will be one of the most prominent growers in Asia, the Vietnamese food and beverage sector happens to be even more appealing to foreign investors.

Currently, thirty-five percent of Vietnamese outdoor food and beverage consumption are based on Western food, mainly because of the growing number of foreign food and beverage brands.

How to Register Food and Beverage in Vietnam

Producers who intend to distribute their products at the Vietnamese market must self-announce food safety quality and compliance to the Ministry of Health. Noticeably, it is companies that are liable for safety issues of their products, and thus food standards should not be underestimated.

Furthermore, the application dossier should several documents such as:

  • The food safety data sheet issued within 12 months before the self-declaration is made by an designated laboratory or a laboratory complying with ISO 17025; the data sheet must specify safety indicators prescribed by the Ministry of Health
  • Product samples
  • Product label
  • Enterprise registration certificate (ERC)
  • Certificate of Free Sale or Health Certificate
  • Product profile

From July 2019, Certificate of Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP) will be a mandatory part of the application package. However it depends on what your product is.
