Vina Cleanfood: Whiteleg shrimp – a good solution in time of raw material shortage
September 01, 2011, 08:24 AM

(vasep.com.vn) There is now high

Currently, whiteleg shrimp products account for 90 percent of the company’s total export volume. In the first seven months of 2011, Vina Cleanfood exported 2,300 MT of finished shrimp products for US$ 25 million. Japan was the largest importer with the proportion of 70 percent of total export value.

In 2011, price of black tiger shrimp was high and volatile due to unstable supply of raw shrimp. In the first harvest, Soc Trang province (in Mekong Delta) reported dead shrimp in 90 percent of local shrimp farming areas, thus, Vina Cleanfood failed to purchase shrimp for processing to meet high demand in global markets. “If we do not turn to whiteleg shrimp, we have to close our processing plant,” Mr. Phuc added.

Many companies including Vina Cleanfood in Mekong Delta consider whiteleg shrimp as an effective alternative in this difficult time. Even though profit from whiteleg shrimp is lower than that from black tiger shrimp, the company plans to add more this kind of shrimp in its structure of export seafood products in an effort to keep operations. It needs to find more workers, because it is so hard to process small shrimp. However, finding skillful workers is a headache problem for Vina Cleanfood. Besides increasing salaries, it also provides others conditions to attract good workers. It was the first company in An Nghiep Industrial Park which spent VND10 billion to build dormitory for workers.
