Assuming responsibilities and producing according to the annual quota

On November 20th,1977, the Ministry of Food issued Decision No. 3008/LTTP-TC to change the State-owned Vegetable Oil Enterprise Tuong An Company into a state-owned industrial enterprise under Southern Vegetable Oil Company. Annual production output, for that reason, had to adhere to the quota.

Obtaining the rights to take the initiative in its production and business, complete the construction of its factory, and invest to increase its production rate.

In July, 1984 the State abolished the subsidized economy, transferred the rights to take initiative in production and business activities for companies. Tuong An Oil Factory was a member of the Vietnam Union of Vegetable Oil Enterprises that had independent accounting and legal standing, therefore, was allowed to take initiative in its production and business activities.

In this period, Tuong An’s industrial goods and consumer goods were traditional products such as shortening, margarine, soap bars. This was the golden age of shortening, production was put into overdrive yet the output was not enough to supply instant noodle factories. Exported oil, mainly filtered coconut oil, took up a large portion (32%) of the total output. Attention was given to product quality and variety, as a result, Tuong An became popular and gained reputation on the market in this period.

Cooking oils entered a period of fiercer competition in the market economy.
