Binh Duong, as one of Vietnam’s national leaders in industrial development and hi-tech agriculture provinces, has a variety of advantages and potentials for promoting distinctive agricultural products, most notably OCOP-certified products, which include South American banana products from An Dien Company Limited. The company had made an important investment in constructing a 40-hectare South African banana farm and a mill complex for processing, storing, and packaging bananas after they were harvested.

Bananas are ripened in cold storage by an ethylene gas system with 5 incubators, each containing about 4 tons of bananas, with a batch duration of 3 days. After ripening, bananas are transferred to another cold storage facility, waiting to be exported to the market. The products are almost entirely consumed in the domestic market, such as in supermarkets, fruit, and vegetable groceries, etc.

The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
