Van Yen commune, about 10 kilometers from Cai Rong port - the centre of the district, is home to hundreds of hectares of orange orchards owned by more than 180 households.  This area comprises a large area of mountains, forests, ravines with fresh and cool atmosphere and high humidity which enable these plants to grow rapidly.

Besides planting native orange varieties such as paper oranges, sugar oranges, and tangerines, farmers in Van Yen have grown famous varieties of oranges nationwide such as Cao Phong orance, Canh orange, Doai orange, etc.

The cultivation of Van Yen orange fully follows VietGAP standards  (Vietnamese Good Agricultural Practice). All of the trees are irrigated with the pure source of water from forest streams, grown with biofertilizers, and do not suffer from any impacts of pepticides as well. That’s why these fruits are really clean and have a speacial taste. 

The brand of Van Yen orange has been registered as one of OCOP products since 2016. The OCOP (One Commune, Once Product) programme has been implemented since 2013 across the province to boost economic development in rural areas, especially the development of agricultural, non-agricultural and service-based products in each locality in the value chain.
