Creating new value

Next year's revenue and profit are higher than those of the previous year, creating jobs and stable income for many workers, products achieving 4-star OCOP, etc., are the highlights that help young businessman Le Van Loc, Director of Co., Ltd. Production and Trade of Hue Anna's Bird's Nest reached the top 100 excellent young entrepreneurs in 2023, commended by the Vietnam Young Entrepreneurs Association.

Currently, Mr. Loc is preparing to expand the raw material area for bird nest farming to expand his production and business model. CEO Le Van Loc affirmed that without innovation, producing product lines that are both good and beautiful will not be able to conquer today's savvy consumers. Therefore, from input materials to output products, his company always ensures the most rigorous processes.

Mr. Loc shared that he clearly understands the adaptive characteristics of the bird's nest species. He designed a modern birdhouse system with automatic sound installation equipment to attract the bird's nest to live and nest. In addition, the company also invests in a suitable humidifier to create an ideal living environment to ensure the health of the birds.

In the bird's nest processing process, his company is applying the production chain according to ISO 2200:2018 standards. With bird's nest soup products packaged in glass jars, the company applies sterilization and distillation at high pressure and temperature to destroy bacteria and safely increase shelf-life. For bird's nest products that are dried and pressed into molds like the original shape, after harvest, impurities are removed by soaking the bird's nest with treated water to remove microorganisms and bird fluff. "This process ensures hygiene and safety while preserving the flavor of bird's nest," Mr. Le Van Loc shared.

Not only young businessman Le Van Loc, many other young entrepreneurs in the province have also brought into play their youth, taken advantage of opportunities, and overcome difficulties and challenges to start a business.

Daring to step out of his comfort zone, the young man Nguyen Van Lam gave up his stable job to establish Song Nguyen Furniture Co., Ltd., specializing in consulting, designing, and providing smart, modern equipment for interior furniture 8 years ago. Although he had researched thoroughly the field he was pursuing, in the early stages of starting his business, he also encountered many difficulties.

“The most difficult thing for me at that time was convincing customers to trust the company's products, changing the customer's perception of pressed wood products. They misunderstood the previous poor quality pressed wood line. But with perseverance, and proof of the quality of the products the company provides, we have been able to do it," said Mr. Lam. At that time, the company established a website, YouTube channel, fanpage, hotline, etc., taking advantage of the e-commerce channel to promote products. Currently, Song Nguyen Furniture Co., Ltd. is increasingly being affirmed in the market.

Returning to her country after earning a master's degree in Thailand, Le Thi Anh Thu, CEO of HUEFARM Research and Development Co., Ltd. created new values from indigenous resources, conquering many startup competitions. She launched new products from oyster such as oyster floss, oysters braised with lemongrass and chili, oyster powder, etc.

In addition, young businesswoman Le Anh Thu also researches and invests in modern technology, freezes ingredients to make mussel noodles to take away. "With this freeze-drying technology, whether at home or abroad, if you want to eat mussel noodles or mussel rice, you can make it yourselves," CEO Le Thi Anh Thu said proudly.
