The recognition was recently announced by the provincial Department of Science and Technology and the Tran Yen district People’s Committee.

Yen Bai is currently home to more than 4,000ha of Bat Do bamboo, mostly planted in Tran Yen, Luc Yen, Yen Binh, and Van Yen districts. The plant prefers moist soil and doesn’t need rich nutrition, which is suitable for traditional cultivation practices of residents in mountainous areas.

State agencies, scientists, businesses, and farmers have worked together throughout the cultivation and harvesting process, helping local farmers earn about 30 million VND (1,300 USD) from each hectare of Bat Do bamboo annually. Bamboo shoots are processed into salted, fermented, and dried products, which have been exported to the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, and Japan.

After getting the geographical indication, Bat Do bamboo shoot products are hoped to have their own brand and win over trust of domestic and foreign consumers.
