Article 1. Approving the Scheme of linking production,
processing, and consumption of agricultural products in Lam Dong Province in the
period of 2019 - 2023 with the following contents:
I. The situation on linking production and
consumption of agricultural products in Lam Dong Province
1. Situation and results of implementation:
By the end of 2018, the whole province had
278,154 ha of agricultural cultivation; 596,000 cattle in total, total meat
output of about 100,000 tons; 77,000 tons of fresh milk output; 125 value chains
with the participation of 75 businesses, 40 cooperatives, 42 cooperative groups,
small establishments, and 13,140 farmer households; in which, 68 production and
consumption chains were certified by domestic and international organizations
for product quality in all stages from production, preliminary processing,
processing, packaging to product consumption.
(Details of the results on the development of linking
chains of production and consumption of agricultural products are provided in
attached Appendix 1.2)
2. Problems and difficulties:
The majority of linking chains are small-scaled and not
yet formed in each concentrated production region; the output of agricultural
products consumed through affiliate contracts is still very low, not ensuring
the sustainability in production and business.
The market for agricultural products is still uncertain
and unstable; most farmers also produce spontaneously, following the market.
Fake Lam Dong agricultural products for sale and consumption have not been
prevented and thoroughly handled; although the brand building and development of
Lam Dong agricultural products have been implemented, not many brands have been
certified, resulting in low competitiveness of agricultural products, making it
difficult to consume and export agricultural products to foreign markets.
Agricultural products produced in the province are aimed
for export, but the rate of preliminary processing and processing of some key
provincial products is still low, mainly for raw export; thus, the added value
is low; technical barriers on licenses for breeds and technology, chemical
residues, import regulations, etc. also hinder production and access to
The linking of production, purchasing, processing,
preserving, and consumption of agricultural products in the province through
businesses (especially large companies), cooperatives, cooperative groups, and
people is still weak and limited.
Many agricultural products are specialties, which make
up the brand of the province, and are losing competitive advantage as many
localities invest in technology to produce and import from countries around the
