Vietnam Customs has taken tougher measures to control the import and export of dairy products.

 The move aims to ensure food hygiene and safety, and prevent the import of unqualified milk, which may cause harm to consumers’ health.

Strict regulation will be imposed on imported dairy products, especially those shipped from New Zealand, which is believed to have contained Clostridium botulinum.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT)’s Import-Export Department and the Health Ministry’s Food Hygiene and Safety Department have received warnings from many countries that some batches of imported milk do not meet food quality standards.
