Masan Consumer has 39 million CRPs in four cities (Ha Noi, HCM City, Da Nang and Can Tho), and 306 million CRPs in rural areas, based on an “innovative metric” which “provides a true representation of shoppers’ choices”.

Its products were chosen more than 130 million times by nearly 80 per cent of rural households and 16 million times by over two-thirds of urban households.
Among them, Nam Ngu, a fish sauce brand, remains the most chosen food brand in rural areas and is second in the urban ranking.
