Insights from the Nghia Tan Market

Vietnam is one of the priority countries for research of the CGIAR Reserch Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH). As the country continues its transformation – from an impoverished, agrarian society into an urban-centered, low middle-income economy – so does the Vietnamese diet. A4NH researchers are trying to find ways to help ensure that the dietary shift and changes lean towards nutritious, safe, and affordable, for the food consumers and producers alike.
