It is forecast that by 2030, Vietnamese bird’s nest production can reach 350 – 400 tons/year, with a value of over 1 billion USD.

Official export of bird’s nest to China

Previously, Vietnamese bird’s nests were only exported via unofficial channels, or through tourism with a small output. Being officially exported to a market of 1.4 billion people is expected to create great opportunities for our country’s bird nest farming industry and bird nest production and processing in the near future.

But recently, Vietnam’s bird’s nest industry just received good news when it officially exported the first batch of bird’s nests to China, according to the Protocol signed between the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the General Department of Customs of China. The first refined bird’s nest products from Vietnam have officially appeared in the Chinese market. Bird’s nest is a high-value agricultural product and is especially popular with the Chinese market.

Chinese partners spent nearly a year surveying the Vietnamese bird’s nest industry, looking for businesses with suitable raw materials, factories and technology to create bird’s nest products with nutritional content and quarantine standards. .

Mr. Duong Tai Huu – Representative of Nhan Hoa Pharmaceutical Group, China said: “The demand for bird’s nest in China is very large. We are planning to import water bird’s nest products from Vietnam. As long as there is a suitable product and meets the set standards, we are ready to cooperate.”

It is forecast that by 2030, Vietnamese bird’s nest production can reach 350 – 400 tons/year.

Currently, Vietnam’s bird’s nest output is about 150 tons, worth over 600 million USD. While China is the world’s largest bird’s nest consumption market, with a demand of up to 300 tons/year, accounting for 80% of the global market share. Increasing processing and diversifying products will be the direction to promote exports to the market of billions of people.

Mr. Phung Duc Tien – Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development said: “One industry can process hundreds of products. Bird’s nest has bird’s nest and water bird’s nest. Bird’s nest can be simmered with lotus seeds and cordyceps to diversify products. Diversify products to serve different market levels and diverse audiences.

Potential of Vietnam’s bird’s nest industry

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, currently, there are 42 provinces nationwide that raise bird’s nests with over 22,000 bird’s nest houses, concentrated in the provinces of Kien Giang, Binh Dinh, Khanh Hoa, and Lam Dong.

To date, 45 businesses have registered to export bird’s nests to China and have been instructed by the Department of Animal Health to monitor disease safety and food safety according to China’s requirements. Among them, 5 bird’s nest production enterprises have been granted export codes by the General Department of Customs of China.

It is forecast that by 2030, Vietnamese bird’s nest production can reach 350 – 400 tons/year, with a value of over 1 billion USD.

Enhance traceability in the bird’s nest industry

However, the biggest challenge of Vietnam’s bird’s nest industry is that bird’s nest farming develops mainly spontaneously, lacking production linkage by industry.

Meanwhile, international consumer demands are increasingly high in both quality and sustainable factors such as traceability and environmental protection. Therefore, issuing codes for swiftlet farming facilities and building a management data system is a top priority today.

The nutritional content of Vietnamese bird’s nest is equivalent to similar products in Malaysia and Thailand.

Up to now, the country has more than 4,000 bird’s nest house codes that have been issued, meaning that only 18% of the total number of bird’s nest houses in the country have identification codes. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is currently building national data on the number of bird nest farms and bird nest production that are close to reality and highly accurate to serve management and export.

The protocol requiring quarantine, inspection and veterinary hygiene for bird’s nest products exported from Vietnam to China has taken effect since the end of last year. However, up to now, there are still bird nest farming establishments and bird nest processing enterprises that are confused in registering for official export.

Localities are also implementing many solutions, guiding bird’s nest houses to register and issue codes, towards synchronous planning of raw material areas.

To develop the bird’s nest profession in the long term, many localities proposed that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development soon issue a general process and manual for exporting Vietnamese bird’s nests to China according to the Protocol to organize and implement it uniformly. nationwide.

Scientists from the Southern Institute of Animal Husbandry (Institute of Animal Husbandry) have just announced research results on bird’s nests raised in Binh Duong and Binh Phuoc regions. Accordingly, for the nutrient content in bird’s nests, analysis results show that bird’s nests in bird’s nests in Binh Duong and Binh Phuoc have a dry matter ratio of 84.65% and protein of 57.56%. , carbohydrates are 22.81% and total fats are 0.56%. Comparison with the results of nutritional analysis of bird’s nests raised in Malaysia and Thailand shows that the average chemical composition of raw bird’s nests (including dry matter, protein, fat, carbohydrates is equivalent to the quality of bird’s nests in Binh Duong and Binh Phuoc. This confirms that the quality of Vietnamese bird’s nests is not inferior to other countries in the region.
