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 was 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 also analysed and quantified existing and potential market opportunities, assessed factors that may improve the competitiveness of those vegetables in the marketplace and developed supply chains that could continue to support the development of community-based indigenous vegetable production.
