Agriculture products from VinEco will be displayed in a separate area at Vinmart and Vinmart+ supermarkets to help customers buy the right products.

These are the first hygienic vegetables to be available six months after Vingroup announced it would invest in the agricultural sector on a large scale. VinEco is expected to supply about 30 tons of fresh vegetables each day in 14 different types under GloblaGAP and VietGAP standards. The vegetables were grown at VinEco farms in Tam Dao in northern Vinh Phuc province, Cu Chi in Ho Chi Minh City, and Long Thanh in southern Dong Nai province, using modern technology and automation from Japan, the world’s leading country in agricultural development.

At the end of August VinEco began construction of a 24.5 ha greenhouse in Vinh Phuc with investment of VND1 trillion ($44.2 million), using Israeli technology and is the largest in Vietnam.

Established in March 2015, VinEco aims to provide safe and clean food resources and export some of Vietnam’s dominant agricultural products. With charter capital of VND2 trillion ($94 million), it has built farms throughout the country with the high technology needed to grow many types of organic vegetables under VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards.
