HÀ NỘI — The Long An Dragon Fruit Association signed a co-operation agreement with Lavi Agri Company Limited on purchasing and consuming red dragon fruit in the province’s Châu Thành and Tân Trụ districts on Monday.

Under the agreement, the company will buy 100 hectares of dragon fruits, equivalent to 3,000-3,500 tonnes, provided that dragon fruits are grown in Châu Thành and Tân Trụ districts and are cultivated using a clean process.

The co-operation is the premise to help the provincial dragon fruit achieve stable and sustainable production in the future.

Dragon fruit growers in Long An are always at risk because the market depends on China, the country’s largest customer, accounting for more than 80 per cent of total consumption.

Therefore, prices are unstable. Facing this situation, the People’s Committee of Long An Province, relevant departments and branches in the province have proposed many solutions in the process of trade promotion, calling for businesses to sign contracts and consume products.

The province currently has more than 12,000 hectares of dragon fruit with output of more than 400,000 tonnes per year. — VNS
