The Vietnam Beef and Dairy Forum, titled Vietnam – Developing Modern and Sustainable Beef & Dairy Supply Chains, will be held in Hanoi on 9 and 10 November 2015. The Forum is being organised by ANZ Vietnam (AusCham’s 2015 Platinum Sponsor), Meat & Livestock Australia and BIDV.

The Forum covers a wide range of topics impacting beef and dairy exports and domestic industries in this rapidly emerging market (see further below for detailed agenda).

Site visits have been organised as optional extras.

On the night of Monday 9 November, attendees will have a rare opportunity to see a Vietnamese abattoir in operation, as the meat is slaughtered and prepared for distribution.

This visit will provide a fascinating opportunity for attendees to visually understand some limitations of the current processing of meat in Vietnam.

Following this, on Tuesday, 10 November, attendees will have the opportunity to visit a wet market in Hanoi. With 80 per cent of meat being sold in wet markets, this visit will enable foreigners to better understand how meat is purchased and consumed by the majority of locals.

Attendees will also visit relevant facilities such as a feedlot, a dairy and a supermarket selling Australian meat.

With Vietnam now becoming one of the largest regional markets for Australian agri exports, this will provide an important opportunity to see first-hand these vital parts for the agri supply chain.

For those attending, organisers are able to provide advice on any aspect of the travel to Hanoi, including visas, hotels or any other potential activities.
