HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Saigon Co.op has signed an agreement with An Giang Province for co-operation in cultivation and consumption of fruits and vegetables.

Under the agreement, the two sides will join forces to develop more sophisticated horticultural techniques, such as the use of netting and mulch for growing fruit and vegetables, with the aim of improving quality and productivity.

They will also introduce VietGap and GlobalGap standards to fruit and veg cultivation in An Giang, to ensure food safety and hygiene as well as reducing production costs.

According to An Giang Province, revenue from selling products to Saigon Co.op accounts for more than 85 per cent of the province's HCM City sales last year. — VNS
