Herbal cultivation areas that meet GACP-WHO standards

GACP-WHO is the principles and standards of Good Agricultural and Collection Practices for Medicinal Plants recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). GACP-WHO is an inevitable trend, playing a very important role in creating a clean source of medicinal materials that meet the standards and ensure quality.

Herbal cultivation areas that meet GACP-WHO standards must meet many strict criteria for genetics (genes of medicinal plants), humans (cultivation techniques, harvesting…), and environment (microbiological conditions, temperature, diseases…) at localities with suitable soil for each type of medicinal plant on the S-shaped land.

In order to standardize and bring high-quality products that are truly safe and effective to consumers, OPC Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company was the first to build herbal cultivation areas that meet GACP-WHO standards since 2006.
