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.
In the period of 2018 and 2021, Rikolto International in Vietnam supports its partners to implement the project “Development of safe vegetable chains for smallholder farmers in Ha Nam and Hanoi” .
In an effort to support farmer organizations to access to the market, Rikolto in Vietnam, on behalf of our partners, is looking for a researcher (or a group of researchers) to conduct a market research identifying barriers and opportunities in accessing the safe vegetable market as well as develop a feasible marketing plan for our target safe vegetable cooperatives in this project.
