Together with farmers, create a green world with organic agriculture

TCCT Through organic products, Vietnamese businesses and Vietnamese farmers are creating a green world on the ground, and in the eyes of consumers around the planet.

Organic agriculture: New door

Organic agriculture has opened a new door for Vietnamese agricultural products to the world in a context where farmers and businesses face many difficulties when global economic growth declines.

There are currently quite a few domestic organic products that are welcomed in the world market. The biggest move is that Thanh Thanh Cong Group (TTC) has given nearly 13,000 sugarcane farming households in the provinces of Tay Ninh, Dong Nai, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, Khanh Hoa, Gia Lai, Dak Lak… where they have houses. TTC’s machinery borrowed capital to produce organic sugarcane with a total outstanding loan of up to 1,000 billion VND. Currently, the sugar industry has just gone through a “bleak” period due to market cycles, but organic sugar is still bright. TTC’s entire organic sugar output is consumed by a large British enterprise with an export value 3 times that of normal sugar.

According to calculations, it takes farmers or businesses more than 3 years to improve water sources, soil, crops… to meet the standards of growing organic agricultural products. But the price to pay is quite reasonable because the market demand is still very large. According to the recent Consumer Confidence Index report conducted by Nielsen, 4 out of 5 consumers show that they are deeply concerned about the long-term effects that artificial additives can cause and want to know more clearly. substances that make up the food they use every day. 80% of people surveyed prioritize using products that do not contain artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

As one of the leading agricultural enterprises in Vietnam with more than 50 years of operation, TTC is leading the domestic market with nearly 50% market share of the sugar industry. TTC determines to focus on commercial business activities according to market demand, promoting R&D activities to become an enterprise producing high value-added agricultural products – integrated consumer trade. Moving forward to affirm its position as a provider of high-tech agricultural solutions on the basis of sustainable development, deeply participating in the global agricultural and commodity value chain.

Pioneering a spectacular transformation, TTC cooperates with farmers to create a green world for Vietnamese agriculture to catch up with new trends with technology as the foundation. On that foundation, TTC gradually builds the TTC brand as a “High-tech agricultural enterprise”, through integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues into all operations. TTC is also highly dedicated to transforming the business model, from a purely agricultural production company to an integrated smart agricultural economic model, following the direction of comprehensive transformation. Management model from pure Engineering Production techniques to Production – Import-Export – Trade in Agricultural services on a multinational development platform.

TTC operates in the field of industrial business (B2B) and consumer business (B2C): with more than 75 sugar product lines, including 8 organic sugar product lines that meet EU and USDA standards; 12 product lines: Roadside, Roadside; 6 drinking water products and 1 Solar power product; Among the Top 20 stocks with the best Sustainable Development scores in the market with an ESG score of over 90%; Extensive distribution system of more than 86,200 retail points and a major sugar supplier for multinational companies operating in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical industries…; Satisfying a variety of domestic customer channels as well as more than 29 export markets – including markets that are very strict on quality inspection such as the US, Australia, Europe, Singapore…

Accordingly, TTC has proactively:

The company spent hundreds of billions of dong applying scientific and high-tech agricultural processes on an area of 45 hectares according to US USDA organic standards. Accordingly, USDA organic farms must avoid using herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers, which will harm the environment in the long run. At the same time, the working environment of workers is also guaranteed for the best health.
