The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has agreed to add 12 Vietnamese businesses to the list of eligible pangasius fish (Siluriformes) exporters to the US.
Thus, now 57 Vietnamese businesses are allowed to export pangasius to the US, the National Agro-Forestry-Fisheries Quality Assurance Department (NAFIQAD) said.
To avoid obstacles in shipping pangasius to the US, NAFIQAD asked businesses to check consignments to ensure that they meet all FSIS requirements.
Earlier in March, Vietnam had only 45 eligible pangasius exporters to the US.
