About Us

Why Choose HOAN VU?

HOAN VU was founded in 2007 by Henry Bui, an American-Vietnamese R&D engineer who spent 17 years at Stanford, Agilent, Thermo Finnigan (now Thermo Fisher) where he designed/invented several aspects of modern mass spectrometry technology. Under Henry’s leadership, HOAN VU became the first independent analytical laboratory in the region who is capable of assessing the safety, authenticity and provenance of food, animal feed and consumer goods. After spending more than 35 years in the United States, Henry moved back to Viet Nam in 2015. His scientific knowledge, global networks and technical expertise ensure that HOAN VU remains the most technically competent and most modern laboratory in Viet Nam. HOAN VU proudly operates with 40+ staff including 30+ analytical chemists and the most advanced analytical technologies available.

HOAN VU operates with uncompromising integrity and is trusted and appointed by five government ministries in Viet Nam. In January 2018, we proudly received a recognition award from the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries after our forensic investigation uncovered illegal, synthetic proteins in animal feed.

HOAN VU is trusted by small producers, processors and by global corporations like Unilever, global food safety auditors NSF and Vietnam’s largest supermarket chain CO-OP and many others. Currently, HOAN VU tests and verifies the quality, safety, authenticity and provenance of approximately 90% of Vietnamese honey exports to the United States and Europe.

At HOAN VU our philosophy is simple – from sample collection to data verification and reporting, HOAN VU is committed to achieving and maintaining the highest performance standards in Viet Nam. Our emphasis on staff training, operations and quality control ensures our laboratory operates with the highest levels of integrity and transparency, ensuring the legal and scientific defensibility of the analytical outcomes provided to our clients and partners.
