Previously on Dec 25, 2019, upon the request of VNM – the major shareholder with 75% ownership, GTN has appointed the following personnel to manage GTN, effective Jan 01, 2020:

  • Mr. Trinh Quoc Dung - General Director
  • Mr. Tran Chi Son - Deputy General Director
  • Mr. Le Huy Bich - Finance Director

GTN has the advantage in producing natural food thanks to the sustainable and integrated agriculture value chain, especially raw milk sourced from Moc Chau Dairy Cattle Breeding JSC ("Moc Chau Milk”) and tea from Vietnam Tea Corporation (Vinatea). These will allow Vinamilk to gradually enhance supply chain performance in order to meet production needs that serve the increasing domestic and export demands.

Specifically, becoming the controlling shareholder of GTN and indirectly participating in managing Moc Chau Milk will enable Vinamilk to make a bold move in developing international standard dairy farming and resources. The strategy to transform Moc Chau - Son La into a high-tech dairy capital of Vietnam will not only help Vinamilk and Moc Chau Milk leverage their strengths and experiences, but also increase the competitiveness of Vietnamese dairy brands and take Vietnam’s dairy industry closer to the development of the global dairy industry.

This M&A deal is considered to be the largest and most successful in Vietnam’s dairy industry in 2019. Besides, this is also the shortest-time record in completing the management and administration transfer process, while gaining the absolute agreement of the involved parties.

Besides holding 74.49% shares of Vilico (the parent company that holds 51% of Moc Chau Milk), GTN also holds a 20% stake in Vinatea. In the coming time, Vinamilk plans to coordinate with Vinatea, regarding management in particularly to formulate a strategy that will lead Vinatea to become the national tea brand in both domestic and regional markets. Furthermore, GTN owns more than 38% of the shares in Ladofoods that founded Da Lat wine. Famously known for its quality and rich heritage, this brand also has a great potential for further development as the consumption habit for wine has become increasingly popular in Vietnam./.
