Sepon Organic Rice: Reaching new heights

Over 48 years of development, Quang Tri Trading Corporation (SEPON) has made remarkable progress, expanded its production and business lines, and actively contributed to international economic integration and sustainable development.

“Business for the poor” is the motto embraced by SEPON for years. SEPON always aims to improve product quality, innovate production technology, and protect the environment, which are considered the pioneering factors for international integration. During its development, SEPON has created a sustainable connection between four parties: businesses, people, authorities and scientists to constantly create valuable agricultural products, contributing to make well-known agricultural brands in domestic and international markets.

SEPON development is associated with agriculture and rural development: Widely develop effective agricultural models on the basis of technology transfer, supply of seeds, feed, fertilizers, and off-take of agricultural products for farmers; participate in the restoration and development of specialized crop growing areas in the localities, promote the brand of local specialty agricultural products to domestic and international markets. SEPON develops material areas for agricultural crops, aiming at safe production, improving productivity and quality of agricultural products.

Since its establishment, SEPON has received many noble awards and certificates of merit from the Party and State, including “Enterprise for Farmers” (2016), National Quality Silver award (for its rubber products) awarded by the Ministry of Science and Technology (2017), 3rd Class Independent Medal, Emulation Flag of the Government (2018), Vietnam Gold Star award for 3 times, Certificates of Merit from many ministries and sectors such as the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Public Security (2018), etc.

In addition to organic rice, SEPON produces other clean agricultural products such as Sepon Quang Tri Green Tea, Cam Lo Peanut, Hai Lang Ginger Tea, Red Brown Rice Tea, Chives, Dragon Blood Rice, Quang Tri Pepper, and Instant Camellia Tea, etc.

Not only focusing on production and business development, SEPON has been actively contributing to charity and community development programs towards local economic, social and environmental goals such as: “Fund for children” to support orphans in Quang Tri province; “Join hands for new rural development in Lia, Huong Hoa”; “Computers and Tet gifts to poor and well-educated children”; “New Year’s Eve with Mother” to pay tribute to Vietnamese heroic mothers living in Quang Tri…

Determining the importance and benefits of achieving international certification and sustainable production to businesses, consumers and environment, the project “Promotion of supply and demand of eco-fair agri-food processing products in Vietnam” (Eco-Fair Project) has accompanied SEPON RICE Processing Factory towards organic products.

From May 2021, within the framework of the Project, Vietnam Rural Industries Research and Development Institute (VIRI) has advised and supported SEPON to self-assess compliance levels, identify room for improvement and develop improvement plan, prepare to implement the registration process for organic certification according to EU organic standards and organic certification according to USDA organic standards. Besides, the Project has also designed some packaging samples for the Company’s rice products in a sustainable way.
