Challenge • • • •

Bad consumption experiences Limited choice Poor food safety level Unsustainable production methods

Window of opportunity in vegetable sector

• Increasing demand for better quality produce (rise of the middle class) • No “brands” in the market (limited quality competition) • Huge yield increase potential

Challenge • Capturing the window of opportunity: • Consistent good quality • Added value

Future of vegetable sector in Dalat Da Lat has grown into an important supplier of vegetables within Vietnam and some export markets, but the sector has to face a few challenges to further grow: • How to comply with future demands from the domestic and export markets in terms of product quality and safety? • How to increase productivity levels per m2 in a sustainable way? • How to ensure year round supply of products? • A modern horticulture vegetable production sector could provide an answer

• How to accelerate the development of a modern horticulture vegetable production sector?  Transition Facility  PSI
