COMPAY PROFILE

VFC is a Vietnamese business. We are proud to incorporate the country name in our brand VIETNAM FUMIGATION JOINT STOCK COMPANY.


The 1960s

In the North, there was the Fumigation Team under the Plant Protection Department – Ministry of Agriculture. In the South, there was the Fumigation Team under Plant Hygiene Division – Crop Protection Department – Saigon Agricultural General Department. After 1975, both Fumigation Teams in the North and the South were put under the control of the Plant Protection Department and continued to fumigate exported goods until 1985 when they were upgraded into Fumigation Company I – Hai Phong and Fumigation Company II – Ho Chi Minh City.

 

December 1993

Implementing the State policy on separating service and trading businesses from State-owned enterprises, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry decided to merge fumigation businesses under the Plant Protection Department into Vietnam Fumigation Company (VFC) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry. This was a turning decision to focus resources for business development. With the support from major changes in the State policy and its own efforts, VFC has held a dominant role in providing pest control service for all the volume of rice and farm produce exported by Vietnam in the world and constructed and maintained a nationwide service network.

With the determination in intensifying its traditional business activities and expanding in the agricultural sector, since 1994, VFC started its agro-chemical import business. VFC became the distributor for world leading agro-chemical companies such as Zeneca, Ciba, Russel, Aventis, Kumiai, FMC.

VFC has two independent fields, namely fumigation sevice and trade in agro-chemicals. Fumigation service follows international integration, focusing on the latest fumigation technology such as J-System, CSIROFLO and SIROCIRC with Phosphine in liquid form, IPM; becoming membership to professional pest management organizations including International Marine Fumigation Organization, NPMA - National Pest Management Association of USA. Also, in 1998, VFC is selected to be project coordinator regarding alternatives of Methyl Bromide in fumigation in order to protect Ozone layer managed by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). Fumigation staff is well-trained in accordance with current international standards in USA, England and Australia.

Apart from fumigation service for import-export and preserved goods, VFC starts to improve pest control service in community: Pestcontrol at industrial parks, hotels, restaurants, residential areas and public hygiene, termite extermination service with brand VFC-PestMaster. This is a new service with great potentials in Vietnam with the aim to meet requirements of living in clean, safe and hygienic community.


In 1999

VFC starts to equitize agricultural chemical department in order to create an effective mechanism in conformity with Vietnam agricultural development speed. Up to late 2001, VFC completes the equitization for the whole company, becoming the first joint stock company in fields of fumigation and agro-chemicals.
