Construction started on the first avocado fruit packing house of Vietnam

DAK LAK – Provincial avocado wholesaler, Ms. Nhon, is one of the key players in the successful DAKADO chain. She has begun the construction of the first avocado packing house of Vietnam.

This new warehouse will enable Ms. Nhon to significantly increase the sourcing volume of avocados which meet the DAKADO quality standard. Ms. Nhon made the decision to invest in this warehouse after the Fresh Studio team assisted her in making a business plan.

Ms. Nhon received further financial support from GTZ and METRO Cash & Carry to invest in the packing house, but the majority of the investment is her own.
