OCOP products, traditional handicrafts, and processed foods will be on display at the Hanoi Agricultural Products Festival in Soc Son District.

The  Hanoi Agricultural Products Festival  2023 will be held in Soc Son District from September 28 to October 1.

It is an important agricultural trade promotion event in the city's activities to celebrate the 69th anniversary of the capital's Liberation Day (October 10).

Hoang Thi Ha, head of Soc Son District Economic Office, said the district is coordinating with Hanoi Promotion Agency (HPA) to organize the event with 160 booths showcasing 1,500 agricultural products, processed food, agricultural products, handicrafts, OCOP (One Commune One Product) products from Soc Son District, Hanoi and 30 provinces and cities across the country.

The products exhibited at the festival are certified with standard packaging, labels and full traceability stamps.

The event aims to promote and introduce OCOP products, ornamental animals, agriculture, handicrafts, handicraft villages, culture, tourism and typical cuisine of Soc Son district and other localities.
