This is one of the four OCOP-POS retail stores that OCOP Global Cooperative will open in cooperation with the District People's Committee in June and July.

At the opening ceremony on June 6, Nguyen Ngoc Yen, Chairman of the Board of OCOP Global Cooperative, said that with the support of the Hanoi Cooperative Alliance, the cooperative had focused its resources on the development of the OCOP-POS distribution channel for the display, introduction, and sale of OCOP products in Hanoi and other provinces and cities nationwide.

The OCOP-POS showcases a wide range of around 500 products from various locations in Hanoi and across the country, featuring items such as Bac Son Tea, Minh Phu Mushroom, and other offerings from Trung Gia Agriculture and Business Services Co-op, she said.

In addition, consumers can access OCOP products through various platforms such as websites, apps, and e-commerce sites.

According to Nguyen Trung Thanh, Vice Chairman of the Hanoi Cooperative Alliance, there are currently about 2,400 active cooperatives in Hanoi. More than 60% of these operate in agriculture, while the remaining 40% specialize in trade, services, and promoting agricultural products and food.

"I believe that cooperatives like the OCOP Global Cooperative will effectively manage the OCOP-POS system and continue to expand it throughout the district and the entire city," said Thanh.
