Rikolto (formerly VECO/Vredeseilanden) is an international NGO with more than 40 years of experience in partnering farmer organisations and food chain actors across Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. Rikolto runs programmes in 14 countries worldwide through eight regional offices.
Rikolto in Vietnam is the Vietnamese Regional office of Rikolto, located in Hanoi. Rikolto envisions a world with production and consumption systems that allow poverty and hunger to be eradicated and that do not burden our planet more than it can bear. Therefore, we empower farmer groups to become solid business partners and implement future-proof, sustainable practices. We support them so that their products meet quality standards. We connect them with innovators in the food industry to explore new ways of doing business.
We are currently seeking a qualified professional for the position of Project Officer to work for the project ‘Increasing fruit and vegetable intake of low-income populations in Vietnam and Nigeria through food system innovations’ (FVN project) for the period 2019-2021. This incumbent will be based at Rikolto’s Regional Office in Hanoi, Vietnam with frequent travel to the Project’s target locations.
The project is funded by the UK’s Department of International Development (DFID) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It is implemented jointly by Wageningen University, CIAT, IFPRI, Rikolto, Bioversity International, Hanoi Medical University, the National Institute of Nutrition, and the University of Ibadan (Nigeria).
