Increasing the safe production, promotion and utilisation of indigenous vegetables by women in Vietnam and Australia

There is increasing demand for indigenous vegetables in Vietnam, and a significant role played by women in their production. Increasing demand also exists within Australia for products within the Asian vegetable range. The aim of this project is to improve farm income in rural areas of Vietnam by increasing the skills of women in the safe production, promotion and utilisation of indigenous vegetables. The project will also analyse and quantify existing and potential market opportunities, assess factors that may improve the competitiveness of those vegetables in the marketplace and develop supply chains that will continue to support the development of community-based indigenous vegetable production.
