Food safety in the smallholder pig value chain in Vietnam: Understanding complexities and adjusting policies

This policy brief seeks to help national and provincial policymakers in better managing food safety along the smallholder pig value chain in Vietnam. It proposes cost-effective, practical interventions based on the evidence from the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR)-funded project Improving food safety in the smallholder pig value chain in Vietnam which was implemented from 2012 to 2017. The brief also includes outputs from a policy forum attended by policymakers from Hung Yen and Nghe An provinces in August 2017 and reflections from the final project workshop held in September 2017 in Hanoi.
