With a huge demand in the US market, this is the second year that Lo Ren star apples have shipped to the US. In order to match the demand, the quantity of Lo Ren star apples has increased remarkably compared to last year. To ensure a sufficient volume of fruit is exported, owners of more than 270 gardens in the districts of Cai Be, Cai Lay and Chau Thanh have had to take meticulous care. Over 100 hectares of star apple trees have been granted specific business codes in the planting area in order to ensure they meet regulations of origin traceability. During the production process, garden owners are required to meet a variety of requirements set by the US’ Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Last year, farmers in Tien Giang exported nearly 100 tons of Lo Ren star apples to the US through businesses such as Dai Lam Moc Co, Ltd and Anh Duong Sao Trading Service Company Limited.
