(BGO) – Bac Giang province recognized 99 products under One Commune One Product programme (OCOP) in two evaluation and classification periods in 2022, 10 of which were rated 4 star and remaining received three star title.
As the encouragement, the provincial People’s Committee mobilized 618 million VND (about 26,200 USD) from the Central budget capital (handed over to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) in 2022) to honor and reward to the owners of recognized OCOP products. This was the first time the province has given bonus to the rated products.
Tan Yen guava of Quyen Phong Agriculture Cooperative is recognized as 4 star OCOP product.
By the end of 2022, the province had 205 OCOP products at least with three star title, including 31 products rated as four star and remaining were three star products.
The province targets to have at least 310 OCOP products (three star title and higher) or 30 – 35 recognized products per year by 2025 in which 1 or two products are rated as 5 star at national level.
To realize the goal, the DARD consults the provincial People’s Committee to submit to the provincial People’s Council issuing the support policies for OCOP implementation in the province in 2023 – 2026 period which specifies bonus rate for recognized products as the encouragement.
