Dislodged from supermarkets, Vietnam’s fruits are being displayed at sidewalk shops and sold by street vendors.
When Vietnam sells its products to the world, it only has a large output. It forgets to tell the story about the culture, history, and the farming process of the land where the products are born.
New records in export turnover were set by key export items for January, making the annual target of $50 billion worth of farm exports feasible.
Trucks carrying farm produce are still stuck at border gates, causing exports of some vegetables and fruits to fall sharply.
In some European countries, dragonfruit is considered ‘super food’, priced at VND650,000 per kilogram. Vietnam has 1.4 million tons of the fruit each year and farmers sell it at only VND3,000 per kilogram.
