Tra Vinh province authorities develop linkages between organic coconut farmers and companies

Authorities in Tra Vinh province are trying to link up companies and farmers growing organic coconuts for mutual benefit. The companies can ensure they get a steady supply of organic coconuts for processing and farmers are guaranteed outlets and incomes.

The Mekong Delta province is the country’s second largest coconut producer after its neighbour Ben Tre. It has more than 23,600ha under coconut and an annual output of 250 million nuts, according to its Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. The department is encouraging companies to link up with farmers to expand organic coconut growing areas and make products from the nuts.

Lam Huu Phuc, Deputy Director of the province’s Department of Planning and Investment, said Tra Vinh had implemented promotional activities to attract investment by coconut companies in Ben Tre to expand organic coconut farming and processing.
