Establishing Value Chain Links of Safe Agricultural Produce
In 2017, the AMD Ben Tre Project invested in Phu Hung Thinh Organic Fertilizer Company and Viet Tam Clean Vegetable Company through Public Private Partnership (PPP) approach. With project support, the two companies have created value chain from agricultural waste (cow dung, coconut coir, hush ash, rice hulls) producing cocopeat and vermicompost fertilizers which are used to grow clean vegetables in Ba Tri district, Ben Tre province. Farmers participated in the value chain of producing safe agricultural products and are assured of a market. The farmers get Vietgap certification. Traceability is established assuring the consumers of clean vegetables.
