NDO - The first container of canned clam meat was exported to Europe on November 22 by Lenger Seafoods Vietnam Company Limited based in the northern province of Nam Dinh.

According to a representative from the Directorate of Fisheries, the fact that clam products are exported to the European market is a good signal, confirming that Vietnam has controlled the farming area and source of raw materials while the production process has met requirements from a fastidious market such as Europe.

The first container of canned clam meat exported to Europe by Lenger Seafoods Vietnam Company Limited consisted of 200,000 boxes for a total order of 2 million boxes (10 containers). The next containers will continue to be produced and exported in 2022.

According to General Director of Lenger Seafoods Vietnam Nguyen Ho Nguyen, the company’s canned clam meat was produced under very strict processing and quality standards.

After several trials and completion of the production process, samples of canned clam meat were tested by European customers, he noted, adding that currently, the first European customers have ordered a total of 2 million boxes for 2022, equivalent to 2,000 tonnes of raw clams.
