Da Lat will export 60 tons of vegetables a month to South Korea starting this month.
Nguyen Cong Thua, head of Anh Dao Cooperative, said under the contract South Korean’s CJ Group would also train cooperative members in vegetable-farming techniques.
Da Lat exports 13,000 tons of vegetables a year to many countries and territories including Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, the US, and the EU.
Lam Dong Province, home to Da Lat, has 12,000 hectares under vegetables, with most of the farms using advanced techniques.
Exports fetch VND400 million (US$18,970) a hectare a year.
