HANOI – For one of our clients, a multi-disciplinary team (an agronomist, post-harvest and business development specialists) from the Fresh Studio Hanoi office is currently undertaking a sector study of the booming Vietnamese gherkin sector.
This young sector, which first started its exports in 2000, is proving to be internationally very competitive, and is growing rapidly. Fresh Studio aims to play a leading role in professionalizing this sector, which provides higher incomes for smallholders, with often less than 0.5 hectares of land, and requires large number of workers in gherkin processing factories.Also interesting to read:
DALAT – Fresh Studio’s R&D manager, Rene van Rensen, and his team have commenced a large herb variety screening trial at Fresh Studio’s own farm.
Over 26 different types of herbs, which have not previously been produced commercially in the Dalat area, are being grown under both open field and protected cultivation conditions. The harvested herbs are being test marketed by METRO Cash & Carry, and will later be increased to a full-scale herbs assortment. At that future stage, Fresh Studio will train several of METRO’s preferred suppliers in larger scale herb production.
