Chairman of VNFU: Excellent Vietnamese farmers are an important factor in promoting linkages
Together with FUs at all levels, good production and business farmers, excellent Vietnamese farmers are important factors for linking and sharing benefits with farmers to create sustainable values.
Member of the Party Central Committee, Chairman of VNFU Luong Quoc Doan shared that on the occasion of his recent visit to two good business models in Ba Ria - Vung Tau province. These are also two models that were voted for the title of Excellent Vietnamese Farmers in 2022.
Excellent Vietnamese farmers in Ba Ria – Vung Tau
The first model is the model of linking dairy farming and consumption of dairy products of Mr. Nguyen Van Nhiem in Chau Pha commune, Phu My town.
In 2017, Mr. Nhiem converted from traditional cow farming to VietGAP standard farming. Mr. Nhiem also invested 2 billion VND to purchase machinery and equipment for yogurt production.
Currently, Mr. Nhiem's facility produces an average of about 4,000 bags of flexible yogurt, more than 3,000 jars of boba and sticky rice yogurt; equivalent to about 350 liters of cow's milk per day.
Mr. Nhiem is linking production and consumption of products for 8 other dairy farming households in the area. Mr. Nhiem's model achieves a profit of 2.6 billion VND/year.
The second model is a production development model linked to the value chain, linking production and consumption of cocoa products on an area of 200ha by Mr. Trinh Van Thanh in Xa Bang commune, Chau Duc district.
In 2001, Mr. Thanh was one of the first people to bring cocoa trees to grow locally. In 2005, Mr. Thanh established Thanh Dat Cocoa Co., Ltd. to consume farmers' products, process and export to foreign countries.
The birth of Thanh Dat Company not only helps stabilize output, but also helps farmers feel secure in production and increase income. The model of linking, processing and exporting cocoa helps Mr. Thanh achieve a profit of 1.6 billion dong per year.
Excellent Vietnamese farmers associate and share benefits with farmers
At the visit, Chairman of VNFU Luong Quoc Doan said that linking production and enhancing processing to improve product value is the direction that FUs at all levels focus on implementing.

Together with FUs at all levels, good farmers and excellent farmers are key factors for models building and economic development.
According to the Chairman of VNFU, these factors must link and share benefits with farmers to create sustainable value. Because if you want to develop, you need to start from the farmers, create benefits and a firm belief in farmers for them to follow and develop together.
"The model of two farmers Nguyen Van Nhiem and Trinh Van Thanh has shown the effort to develop from the household economy, cooperate with other farmers to build product brands, create strengths for the locality and the region from cocoa trees and dairy cows," emphasized Chairman Luong Quoc Doan.
On the occasion of the visit and work with good production and business models, the delegation of VNFU also awarded 20 scholarships to poor studious children in Ba Ria - Vung Tau.
