In order to improve its reputation, over the past time, Homestay Loan Khang in Sa Ren village, Nghia Loi commune, Nghia Lo township, has carried out measures to attract tourists by bettering the quality of services to ensuring environmental sanitation and food hygiene and safety.

Hoang Thi Loan, the homestay’s owner, said that every day, the homestay serves dozens of meals, mostly for those who stay overnight. The number will surge during festivals. Therefore, the establishment has paid special attention to ensuring food safety and hygiene.

Sharing the same view, the owner of Hang Beo restaurant in Mu Cang Chai town said that at the peak of the ripe rice season, the number of visitors to Mu Cang Chai increases dramatically. However, that does not mean that restaurants neglect food hygiene and safety.

"We always pay special attention to choosing quality, fresh and green vegetables of clear origin; ensure the water system in accordance with required standards; and preserve food in such equipment as freezers, pantry cabinets, and those for food samples,” said the owner.

Luong Quoc Dung, Director of the Sub-Department of Food Safety and Hygiene, said that every year, the sub-department coordinates with authorised agencies, districts, township and Yen Bai city to inspect, examine and request restaurants, hotels, and catering establishments to strictly comply with regulations on ensuring food hygiene and safety.

For those infringing on these regulations, the inspection teams have handled them in accordance with regulations and requested them to address the shortcomings and strictly comply with regulations. Special attention has been paid to localities, and production and business establishments with branded culinary products such as wine, rice, smoked meat, dried meat, and ‘com’ (young sticky rice flakes).

A safe, green and clean tourism environment is what Yen Bai has been aiming for to develop sustainable tourism. To that end, it requires not only drastic actions of local authorities, but also cooperation of the whole society, each citizen and each person involved in the non-smoke industry.
