Vietnam’s seafood industry excellently set an export record with a total value of up to 11 billion USD, the highest level ever, making Vietnam one of the three largest seafood exporting countries in the world (2022). ). Seafood production and processing can be considered one of the large and important industries of Vietnam. Therefore, the seafood processing industry has invested heavily in technology, quality management, food safety and export standards to meet the strict requirements of the world market.


Fisheries in Vietnam’s development orientation and vision to 2045 will be a modern, sustainable economic and trade sector with advanced management, science and technology. To meet that, what do seafood processing and exporting enterprises need to pay attention to?

In the writing What can Vietnamese seafood learn from Norwegian salmon? Mr. Nguyen Hoang Anh – Chairman of Nam Mien Trung Fisheries Investment Company said that Norway’s success comes from raising and distributing salmon: “It’s them have standards, have product criteria, They have product quality so they are confident in bringing their products to the world.”

– To improve the brand, it is necessary to stabilize quality and quantity, it is necessary to develop a sustainable high-tech Vietnamese Seafood industry, with a closed value chain, ensuring food safety and hygiene from farming to production. Processing.



– To meet standards for processing, packaging and circulating aquatic products, businesses need to comply with regulations and standards of the Ministry of Health and relevant management agencies to ensure food safety for humans. consumption. At the same time, it is necessary to invest in machinery, equipment and production technology to improve productivity and ensure product quality.

Some important solutions to keep in mind when investing in machinery for seafood processing include:

1. Packaging equipment

– One of the first requirements to be able to circulate and export the product is to have packaging and packaging specifications to preserve and transport the product safely. Packaging equipment operating in the seafood industry must have good water resistance, not rust, and parts in direct contact with the product must be made of high quality stainless steel.

– In addition to normal packaging, VMS also provides additional packaging options and shrink wrap, skin-tight suction film. Granular packaging for food and aquatic animal feed production.

2. Weight checking equipment

– Check the weight of aquatic products and ensure accuracy during packaging and shipping. Good monitoring of product weight ensures business reputation as well as avoids waste due to excess weight.

– Automatic industrial weighing equipment provides very high productivity from 15 to 300 products/minute. Detect and eliminate non-conforming products automatically. Count the number of correctly and incorrectly weighed products so that businesses can properly calibrate them during the packaging process.

3. Equipment for checking impurities and metals

– Quality control inspection of seafood is an almost mandatory step before being circulated on the market as well as exported abroad. Each country has special standards for weight control and product safety. Therefore, businesses need to invest in impurity and metal detectors to ensure there are no foreign objects remaining in the product.

– Currently there are 2 solutions for testing including:

X-ray impurity detector

– Bone detection system applies technology from Japan, trusted by many domestic and international businesses. The system brings certain value to manufacturing businesses.

– The machine can detect and detect whether the product is mixed with impurities: bone, metal, non-metal, impurities that are not part of the product’s composition.

– In addition, the machine can also detect packaging errors, product shortages, and product weight, contributing to comprehensive product inspection. Give products high quality before leaving the factory.

Metal detector

– Metal detectors are used to inspect products such as seafood, agricultural products, food, beverages, medical products, cosmetics, etc.

– The Square metal detector line is currently the only dual wave detector line in the world, detecting and testing metals and non-metals.

– Stainless steel detector frame, easy to clean and maintain. The machine meets IP66 standards for durable operation in both wet and dusty environments.

4. Trace printing device

– Traceable printing is a phrase that, although not new, is not yet properly understood and respected by many businesses. Whether products are circulated on the market or exported abroad is controlled by many types of regulations, including laws requiring the provision of production date and expiration date information on products. products such as Clause 5, Article 1 of Decree 111/2021/ND-CP.

– Providing complete information for products requires printing equipment. Information that can be printed on seafood product packaging includes: Production date, expiration date, weight, batch number, lot, batch, barcode, QR code, brand logo…

– The newsletters printed on these packages, in addition to providing information to consumers, also contribute to tracing the production process, helping businesses determine exactly which line the product was produced on. , what time and who is the operator at that time. Contribute to protecting consumer rights and brand reputation when any product-related incidents occur.

5. Equipment into carton, wrapped with shrink film

– After being processed, packaged, printed with information and fully inspected, the product will be put into cartons, palletized or shrink-wrapped or wrapped to make transportation more convenient and safer.
