Kampot fish sauce producers are preparing to produce fish sauce in accordance with sanitary standards for export to the international market, while the Ministry of Commerce is currently studying the possibility of registering Kampot fish sauce as a Geographical Indications (GI) product.
Oknha Chan Sitha, General Director of Ech Ngov Heng Kampot Fish Sauce Company, told local media that while the Ministry of Commerce plans to register Kampot fish sauce products as a geographical indication for fish sauce products in the province, the move will lead to greater recognition as well as ease of export, prompting his company to prepare in advance both production methods and quantities to meet hygiene standards for future export to international markets.
He added that after the inclusion of GI products, there will be a wider promotion, which will make it easier to export Cambodian products to foreign markets.
He added that at present, fish sauce production has not been exported to foreign markets because it is still produced naturally, with an annual production of between 100,000 to 200,000 liters.
