Expanding Sustainable Raw Material Areas

With the desire to bring clean, high-quality products for the health of the community based on the principles of respect and conservation of the environment and natural resources, Phuc Thinh Export Import Investment Corporation (PTEXIM) continues to develop cinnamon raw material areas according to the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) standards, as well as organic international systems for pepper, cinnamon, and cloves.

Participating in UEBT is a commitment to business ethics, emphasizing the social responsibility of the enterprise

It is known that the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) is a non-profit association that encourages sourcing in a way that respects human beings and biodiversity. UEBT is recognized worldwide for its efforts in nature regeneration, ensuring a better future for humanity through the search for ethically sourced natural materials. UEBT certification is based on independent audits, including certification of ethical sourcing systems, ingredient certification, UEBT/Rainforest Alliance herbal and spice programs. Businesses must undergo rigorous evaluations based on documents, field observations, and direct interviews.
