15 years ago, on a trip to Xuan Tam commune, Van Yen, Yen Bai I had the opportunity to visit the hills of cinnamon planted by people. Living in the area mainly ethnic minorities such as Dao, Tay, Nung, H'mong, San Diu, the economic life of people was very difficult. Their livelihood depended on some terraced fields with cinnamon trees planted on the hill. All living expenses came from the sale of cinnamon bark and cinnamon tree wood, on average, each tree grew 10-15 years only earned very little VND 100,000 to 200,000
The revenue was low, the living condition was too hard, there were no warm clothes to wear when it was cold, when it rained, there were the landslide and flash flood causing traffic congestion, the people had many difficulties to bring products to town for sale.
After this trip I was very anxious and did not know how to help people reduce poverty, improve the value of cinnamon. Finally, I find that only the way to export to the world and penetrate into the international market to help people increase revenue, improve the economy.
At that time, I decided to leave off work with the high salary to apply for a job at a big company specializing in manufacturing and exporting Seasoning Flavor to learn experience. So far 15 years have passed, I feel it is time to make the gestation of the old day. That is the chance for the birth of AFP – Agro-forestry Co., Ltd
I have established the AFP – Agro forestry Co., Ltd with the desire to ensure stable output for agricultural products planted by poor people in mountainous areas. Cinnamon, star anise will be sold at high price, their life is less hard.
Each year our company buys thousands of tons of Cinnamon, Star Anise, Pepper, Ginger and Turmeric to sell for foreign directly and domestic export companies. AFP - Agro forestry Co., Ltd has taken its HEART (TÂM) and PRESTIGE (TÍN) to recommend in each batch and always commits to quality with the desire to bring VIETNAMESE TASTE TO REACH THE WORLD.
