Company Achievements & Role as Entrepreneur
Starting her career in the agricultural sector with the TH true MILK Clean Fresh Milk project, Thai Huong has contributed to ensuring national food and nutrition security in Vietnam. With a capacity of 500,000 tonnes of fresh milk a year, this VND 1.2 billion project in December 2020 was recognized as “The world’s largest high-tech centralized dairy farming and processing complex” by the World Records Union.

In 2022, the TH true MILK brand accounted for as much as 45 percent of the Vietnamese fresh milk market share, with 160 lines of products and the expansion of export markets to China and other Southeast Asian nations.

After her great success in implementing the gigantic project in Nghe An, Madame Thai Huong has continued developing similar models in high-tech dairy farms and milk production in other provinces across Vietnam, such as Ha Giang, Cao Bang, Thanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Kon Tum, and An Giang. All the dairy farms supply a huge volume of fresh and clean milk for domestic consumption and export.

As the initiator of the National School Milk Programme, Madame Thai Huong has always desired to bring the best to children, with a set mission “For Vietnamese stature”. At present, she is accompanying the Vietnamese education sector to research school meal models and many activities aimed at improving children’s nutrition and physical health.

She is also now providing investment consultancy for sustainable agricultural development projects in the northwestern region, Western Nghe An, and the Central Highlands region. This has helped to regenerate forests and preserve and exploit indigenous herbs to help local residents in economic development, hunger elimination, and poverty reduction. This also contributes to the protection of the environment which provides clean water and ecosystems for the whole community.

Madame Thai Huong’s successful sustainable development models are continuing to be expanded with new large-scale projects in Russia and Australia. As the Chairwoman of the Vietnam Association for Women Entrepreneurs, she has also made great contributions to promoting the activities of female entrepreneurs and their efforts for sustainable development in Vietnam.

Madame Thai Huong's investment orientation has laid the foundation for the development of the TH Group over the past 10 years as well as for the dairy farming and clean fresh milk processing industry. Her steadfast will and vision for the future have created a revolution in the Vietnamese dairy market, especially changing consumer habits from reconstituted milk to fresh milk.

Vision, Mission, & Future Plans
Apart from fresh milk, Madame Thai Huong is continuing the development of other indispensable foodstuffs such as clean rice, clean vegetables, fish sauce, cooking oil, chili sauce, tomato sauce, and more.

In addition to production and business activities, she is also now accompanying the Vietnamese government in the implementation of many large-scale, community-oriented programs involving hunger alleviation, poverty reduction, and pandemic prevention. She considers sustainable development as a guiding principle for all business activities, and has been building and developing an enterprise based on the core value of “for the health of the community”.

Madame Thai Huong has defined a sustainable development strategy based on six pillars: Nutrition-Health, Environment, Human, Education, Community, and Animal Welfare. These pillars were developed and designed by the TH Group with a clear purpose that encompasses many of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Since founding the TH Group, Madame Thai Huong has been consistent with her mission of placing the group’s interests within the common interests of the country while rationalizing benefits instead of maximizing profits.
