At each sales point, around 100 fresh food products such as pork, frozen beef, vegetables, and fruits and processed foods from brands such as Cho Sale, Go Green, Grove Fresh, Nutifood, TTC, and Coca-Cola are sold at prices that are 5-10 per cent lower than market prices.

Besides, many of the items are sold at discounts of 10-50 per cent.

Nguyen Nguyen Phuong, deputy director of the department, said the programme seeks to supply essential goods at stable prices to workers, help businesses resume safe production and ensure quality and food safety and hygiene.

 

It is being trialled at the Tan Thuan EPZ and Linh Trung 1 and Linh Trung 2 IPs from November 22 to March 31, and the department and the Export Processing Zones and Industrial Parks Authority will then evaluate its effectiveness to expand to all EPz and IPs in the city.
