(HBO) – Under the One Commune One Product (OCOP) programme, Hoa Binh province currently has 123 OCOP-recognised products. Among them, 99 meet the 3-star standard and the remainder meet the 4-star standard.
Luong Son district introduces OCOP products at the
Week of Hoa Binh Agricultural Products held in Hai Phong city from July 19-24.
As one of the leading OCOP products in the province, fresh bamboo shoots and
fresh bamboo sprouts produced by Kim Boi JSC in Ba Hang Doi township, Lac Thuy
district, are favoured by consumers both in and outside the province. They are
now available in many clean farm produce stores and large commercial centres,
and also exported to various major markets such as Japan, the Republic of Korea
and the European Union. Fresh bamboo shoots and bamboo sprouts have been rated
at 4-star standard and are in the process of meeting 5-star quality standard.
Bamboo cultivation areas have been developed in Kim Boi, Lac Son and Mai Chau
The widespread application of sci-tech in production is a primary focus of
Phuong Huyen Plant Breeding and Trading Co., Ltd. in Hoa Binh city in order to
build and develop its 4-star Pa Co snow shan tea products. Recognised as a
high-value crop suitable for the local soil and climate, tea has been chosen as
the main crop in the communes of Hang Kia and Pa Co in Mai Chau district.
At present, many households are applying sci-tech in various
stages of production, processing, preservation, packaging, and marketing of
OCOP products, thus improving product quality, diversifying product offerings,
enhancing market value, and building trust among consumers.
In addition to supporting and applying sci-tech to build safe and quality
production processes, OCOP owners have received local support to hold events,
fairs, workshops, and market sessions to connect trade and showcase their
products, toward facilitating the trade of local OCOP products to consumers
Alongside traditional sales methods, OCOP owners proactively and flexibly
introduce their products on e-commerce platforms. Currently, more than 100 OCOP
products from the province are available on e-commerce platforms such as
Voso.vn and Postmat.vn.
Nguyen Huy Nhuan, Director of the provincial Department of
Agriculture and Rural Development, said the agriculture sector will continue to
work with various departments and localities to raise awareness among officials
and the public regarding the OCOP programme.
The sector is also focusing on boosting trade, prioritising
the development of networks connecting production and trade, and expanding
markets for sustainable development. Furthermore, they are developing material
areas and establishing deep processing models, organic and circular agriculture
to improve the quality and value of local key products associated with the OCOP
The One Commune One Product (OCOP) programme has helped encourage active labour among farmers, increasing production and creating high-quality products. In response to the programme, farmers in Phu Cuong commune, Tan Lac district, are working on their local sweet potato branding and forming a concentrated production area for better income and economic development.
Measures have been taken in Hung Thi commune, Lac Thuy district to eliminate hunger, reduce poverty and increase the income of residents. Currently, the commune has an average income of 51.1 million VND ($2,120 USD) per capita per year and its poverty rate is just 18%.
A delegation from Sao Do (Red Star) Entrepreneurs’ Club led by its President Nguyen Canh Hong has visited Hoa Binh to explore investment opportunities in the province.
Over the years, businesses located in local industrial parks (IP) have operated stably, completing and exceeding their plan and enjoying growth in revenue, export revenue and State budget payment, while contributing to creating jobs for local labourers.
In the cause of sustainable poverty reduction, the State’s supporting policies are considered a powerful lever to help poor and near-poor households escape poverty in Hoa Binh province.

Their efforts have produced positive results.
