Con Cung has ambition to launch up to 2,000 local stores by 2025, expand its product portfolio, as well as to develop an all-in-one super app that provides personalised products and services for millions Vietnamese mothers.    

Founded in 2011, Con Cung is a household name in the mother and baby products industry with over 600 fully-owned stores across 45 provinces and cities in Vietnam.

It holds exclusive distribution rights for a number of international brands, including from Japan, the US, Australia and South Korea, and actively collaborates with leading factories across Asia to develop and manufacture private-label childcare products that are safe, high-quality and affordable.
