With an expectation to expand production and supply the product to supermarkets, convenience stores and restaurants, Hanh collaborated with some households in the village to establish Hanh Thai Noodle Production and Consumption Cooperative in 2019.

The market has been expanded where the productivity has been increased by 30 percent year on year and average income of the workers ranges from 7 to 9 million VND (298 to 383 USD) per month.

According to the statistics, the province has total 27 craft villages by the end of 2022 working in 4 groups of industries including processing and preserving agricultural, forestry and fishery products, furniture production, bamboo rattan, garment and textile, bonsai production and trading, services for production and rural living.
