Business description: Lenger Seafoods Vietnam – a member of Lenger Seafoods Group of the Netherlands – is an enterprise specializing in aquaculture, purchasing and processing aquatic products. The new facility in Vietnam has top-notch quality control, including a complete lab and live “wet” storage, as well as a state-of-the-art purification system developed at its facilities in Europe that cleans the clams to a very high degree.

The company is now exporting clams to international markets including in Europe, and has begun doing frozen production of the clams as well in addition to its live, fresh and cooked products. The company is targeting to grow up to 10,000 tons of production capacity and double that if it adds more production lines to the facility.

Lenger Seafoods is a large corporation with more than 90 years of experience in the business of manufacturing seafood products. The team of scientists of the corporation has researched and developed a closed and modern clam cleaning system. All clam cleaning and preservation activities are based on natural principles.

Inclusiveness: We involve low-income groups as producers.

In addition to international markets, we also aims to develop domestic market and build up brand awareness for clean clam products in Vietnam, which in turn will support the development of a sustainable value chain and improve livelihood of local producers.
