The Vietnam PGS Organic Standards for Producers are standards drafted by the PGS Coordination Committee in line with IFOAM Basic Standards and MARD’s Standards for Organic Production and Processing. These PGS Standards for Producers cover crop production as well as animal production. Separate Standards are developed for handling, processing, and retailing. Together, these standards enable the Vietnam PGS to give certification service for organic crops and animals produced from farm up to the final sale to consumers.
