Uniss Manufacturing, a member of Switzerland’s Unisto AG in Asia, has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Vietnam’s Blue Dragon Consulting Ltd to set up a joint venture company manufacturing high quality security seals. The deal aims to boost the current supply of high quality security seals in the domestic market by building a factory to manufacture such seals in southern Ba Ria Vung Tau province.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Bich Thao, Managing Director of Blue Dragon, affirmed that with the current close cooperation with Unisto, the company is proud to be the leading company in Vietnam in supplying international-standard security seals and ensuring they are delivered safely and securely.

“The trust of esteemed customers such as Vietnam Airlines, INSEE, Vinamilk, SASCO, DHL, Brink Vietnam, APL and many others is evidence of the efficiency and high quality seals Blue Dragon brings to customers,” she said.

“The partnership with Blue Dragon aims to bring innovative security solutions into high quality security seals in Vietnam,” said Mr. Alex Tai from Uniss Manufacturing. “The cooperation plan for the factory’s construction is part of bringing Swiss technology closer to Vietnamese customers and expanding in overseas markets.”

“We hope to bring our expertise and original security solutions through this joint venture, with a strong commitment that our security solutions will help customers from various industries such as transport and distribution, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, banking and cash-in-transit, and courier services to maximize their profit from our security solutions.”

Blue Dragon and Unisto were selected last year as the trusted supplier of security seals for the “Pork Traceability Project” of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade. “We are proud to contribute a small part in the supply chain to ensure that Ho Chi Minh City’s populace are using pork products that can be traced from the source, to ensure public health and safety,” Ms. Thao said.

The selection of Unisto as joint venture partner helps Blue Dragon bring Swiss quality products to Vietnam and neighboring countries like Laos and Cambodia at the most competitive price.

This is also a turning point in educating the general public and address counterfeit goods and low quality cheap seals, which are prevalent in Vietnam.

Unisto AG is an international corporation established in 1926, with more than 90 years of experience in the fields of security seals and brand identification. It is headquartered in Switzerland and has manufacturing plants in Germany, France, India, and Malaysia.

After eight years of establishment, Blue Dragon is now a leading company in providing high-quality products of international standard to Vietnam, ensuring goods safety in the process of transportation. In addition to supplying security seals for the TE FOOD project in Ho Chi Minh City, it also supplies security seals to Vietnam Airlines, Coop Mart, Holcim, True Milk, Vinamilk, Gemadept, Vietsun, and Brink Vietnam, among others.

The scheme for pork origin traceability employing security seals is being implemented by the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade with supplies from many enterprises, including Blue Dragon, a long-time partner of Unisto AG in Vietnam. Unisto’s products were selected under stringent requirements on technology as well as the assurance of safe delivery.

As part of the smart urban construction plan to help Ho Chi Minh City become a more civilized and modern society and also adhere to the trend of international integration, the food safety project was launched in December 2016.

Through the application of security seals, information originating from authorized piggeries are captured digitally, which includes origin, place of slaughter, and slaughter time, are displayed for consumer’s knowledge. “What is the source of nutritious food for the family?” is no longer an issue. This creates an atmosphere of consumer confidence in food supply countrywide.
