Establish a sustainable Pangasius supply chain in Vietnam

The Vietnamese aquaculture's significance for the country cannot be overestimated. The sector supplies over 90% of the world pangasius export and hundred thousands Vietnamese depend on it. Instead of its rapid growth, there is a huge concern of the environmental and social impacts of pangasius farms and processing facilities. Uneaten feed, unused medication and untreated chemicals often escape the farm and enter the rivers. Producers' general lack of knowledge results in poor quality products, leading processors and producers to compete on price rather than quality or added value.

The Objectives: The project aims that by the end of its action at least 70% of the targeted middle to large pangasius producing and processing SMEs, and 30% of the feed producers, hatcheries and small independent production SMEs are actively engaged in RE-CP; and at least 50% of targeted processing SMEs are providing sustainable products with ASC standard to EU and other markets.

Duration: 4/2013 - 3/2017
