The project ProFood2C is an exploration mission jointly conducted by researchers from 3 research units: UMR CESAER, UMR PAM, and UMR CSGA to observe the food supply system of Vietnamese cities.  Our interdisciplinary team makes field visits at farms, wholesale and retail (open) markets in Vietnam, and indentify the way that food is provided to urban consummers here. The objective is to track the supply chains of some main agricultural products – vegetables and meats in particularly – and to understand their conditions of production, distribution and conservation.

Vietnam is a country who support strongly local food policy. Application of their local food system could produce interesting benchmarking with French food system. At the same time, Vietnamese food system is facing serious sanitary problems, due to intensive modes of production and processing. Our mission also consist on understanding underlying factors of this problem.

ProFood2C is carried out in continuity with previous cooperations between AgroSup Dijon and Hanoi’s research centers, such as Hanoi University of Sciences and Technologies, Vietnam Fruits and Vegetables Research Institute, Vietname Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development.
