HCM CITY (VNS) — Over 20 aquaculturists in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta have benefited from a programme meant to teach them about VietGap standards.
Organised by the Department of Fisheries and German retailer Metro Cash & Carry Viet Nam, the programme has helped farmers raise the quality of their produce from the current Metro Requirement to VietGap standards.
To begin with the programme is assisting farmers raising frog, fish, and eel in Can Tho city and Vinh Long Province.
A Metro spokesperson said demand from canteens and restaurants for fish, eel, frog, and shrimp has increased and VietGap is their first priority when choosing a supplier.
The training programme, which ends in December, also hope to help farmers find more partners. . — VNS
