To boost the market shares of Vietnamese mangoes in the US, the local firms need to meet strict standards regarding growing areas, processing and packaging facilities that are given relevant codes for management, origin traceability, a quarantine by the Plant Protection Department and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
