Tea quality standard declaration for businesses


Vietnam is known to be the seventh largest tea producer and the fifth largest tea exporter globally. The diversity and richness in types of tea products, such as stir-fried tea, green tea, Oolong tea, scented tea, and herbal tea, etc. are increasingly meeting the consumption needs of both domestic and international consumers. To circulate and trade in the market, businesses need to declare the quality standards of tea.

Tea quality standard declaration ensures the quality and origin of the product to consumers. In this article, let’s join TIN Holdings to explore the procedures for this declaration!

Legal Basis:

  • Food Safety Law No. 55/2010/QH12
  • Decree No. 15/2018/ND-CP detailing certain articles of the Food Safety Law

Prescribed tea quality standard declaration dossier:
