Foreign-backed Japfa Comfeed Vietnam Co., Ltd. has just donated medical equipment and devices – including dialysis machines, handheld X-Ray machines, oxygen ventilators, and more – to the COVID-19 quarantine area and associated field hospitals located at An Loc Plaza in the southern province of Binh Phuoc as part of the company’s community support activities for pandemic prevention and containment.

On the celebration event of the 17th Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day, Tran Tue Hien, Chairwoman of Binh Phuc People’s Committee extended gratitude to the company (Japfa Vietnam).
Binh Phuoc’s quarantine area and field hospital at An Loc Plaza have 1,000 beds for quarantine patients and 300 beds for treatment. This facility is in charge of examining and treating COVID-19 patients from Long Binh city and Hon Quan, Loc Ninh, and Bu Dop districts, and is ready to share the burden of other areas in the province if needed.
Pursuing sustainable development, since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Japfa Vietnam has donated over 11 tonnes of chicken, nearly one tonne of pork and some 128,000 chicken eggs worth nearly VND800million ($34,780) as a way to encourage those fighting the pandemic on the front line and easing the difficulties of people nationwide. Especially, in June, the company donated $1 million to the Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front to contribute to the national COVID-19 Vaccine Fund to join hands with the Vietnamese government in mass vaccination to accelerate economic recovery.
Japfa entered Vietnam in 1996 through a joint venture with Vietnam Livestock Corporation. In 1999, Japfa became a wholly foreign-invested company – Japfa Comfeed Vietnam Co., Ltd. – headquartered in Vinh Phuc province. The company is now operating six feed production factories, more than 300 poultry and livestock farms, and a network of some 30 stores selling meat and processed foods under the Japfa Best brand. With its more than 5,500 skilled employees, Japfa is step by step expanding its business, contributing to animal husbandry development in Vietnam.
