(QNO) - Phan Van Quyen’s agarwood start-up products are now present at different foreign markets, such as Dubai, the U.S, China, Japan, and France.
After graduating from university, Quyen had chances to get acquainted with the scent of agarwood.
He recognised this good scent not only in Vietnam but in different countries such as Myanmar, Singapore, Cambodia, and Thailand.
However, most of the agarwood scents from incense are not natural but chemical, which may have bad impacts to human health.
Meanwhile, agarwood from his hometown - Nong Son district, Quang Nam province - is mainly used to make artworks and jewels but not to develop such products as incense.
So, he decided to start at the production of incense buds and sticks, then extracting agarwood essential oil.
Fortunately, Quyen’s agarwood essential oil is popular with people in different local and international markets.
So, it is exported to many countries, including the UAE, the US, Australia, China, Canada, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea.
Quyen is now planning to cooperate with more local people to have an abundant and quality source of raw agarwood materials for his increasing production which meets market demands.
