VIETNAM AGRO SUPPLY CHAIN CONFERENCE 2017

HCMC, Tuesday 28 Feb. 2017 08:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

VIETNAM AGRICULTURE                                                                                 

 

In 2016, the primary food crops suffer from climate, livestock & aquaculture grew.The Northern region suffered from drought at the start of the season, and extended rainfall with flooding near the harvest time (July, August). The rice growing area reduced by 14,700 hectares, loss of 30kg yield per hectare. The Southern region, excessive rainfall and flooding at the start of the winter season also lowered growing area & productivity. Livestock enjoyed a favorable year with little disease outbreak. Good disease control practice and good price for meat encouraged farmers to re-invest to expand the herd. Aside from environmental issues relating to coastal water pollution in the Central of Vietnam, the fishery & aquaculture sector enjoyed stable growth.

 

SUPPLY CHAINS IN AGRICULTURE IN VIETNAM                                           

 

Vietnam received a 55.7 score on the 100-score scale for supply chain operation, 60.6 score for product quality control and 48.4 score for farm produce trade. Compared with the Philippines, Vietnam excels in product quality control but is inferior in the supply chain operation and trade. Vietnam’s scores in trade are even lower than Cambodia and Laos. Lack of investment in logistics services is blamed for big losses in agriculture. Farm produce is a major export item which makes up 18-20 percent of the total national product. However, most agribusinesses are small and medium scale, with the number of export products not large. Meanwhile, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the expenses on logistics services in Vietnam are relatively high, which weaken the competitiveness of Vietnamese products in the region. This explains why many producers and exporters don’t want to use package logistics services. This results in big losses during the harvesting, processing, storage and transportation.  A report of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) showed that the average loss rate is 25-30 percent. The loss is a little bit higher in seafood processing, at 35 percent, while it is up to 45 percent in vegetables and fruit. This is blamed on the low mechanization level in agricultural production and limited transportation capability. A World Bank survey showed that Vietnam’s mechanization index is low at 24.4 score, equal to Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar and far below the Philippines. The transportation index in agriculture is lower than Laos by 10-15 score. Experts pointed out that logistics play an important role in agriculture production, because the longer it takes to transport farm produce, the higher failure rate will occur. If the problem cannot be settled, Vietnam will find it hard to join the global production chain.

VIETNAM FRESH & COLD SUPPLY CHAIN CONFERENCE 2017

HCMC, Tuesday 28 Feb. 2017 13:00 p.m. – 17:00 p.m.

 

VIETNAM COLD CHAIN                                                                                   

 

Strong foreign infrastructure and logistics activity signal that Vietnam should be a growth market, though government regulatory concerns keep it on the lower end of this year’s Top Markets rankings. Vietnam’s organized retail sector is at the beginning stages of growth, and most retailers and cold chain operators are continuing to monitor the development of the market. Food spending is expected to increase on average by 10.5 percent annually to reach over $31 billion by 2020. There is a traditional preference to eat fresh products, leaving the frozen food segment fragmented. The entry of major retailers with supermarket models combined with increasing exports of farming and seafood products are expected to drive demand for cold chain services. The estimated $46 billion franchise sector in Vietnam is very popular and well suited for the developing economy. American food and beverage franchise brands have become big players in the market, as Vietnamese consumers associate western brands with quality and lifestyle. With internet penetration at more than 45 percent, e-commerce in Vietnam has grown substantially over the last five years to reach nearly $4.2 billion in 2015 and accounts for 2.1 percent of all retail sales, according to the Vietnam E-Commerce and Information Technology Agency. The average shopper spent $165 online. Across Asian nations, there has been a trend toward purchasing groceries and food products online. This may represent a great opportunity for cold chain service providers, as the emergence of online shopping for groceries should create additional demand for refrigerated delivery and warehouses near major population centers. Pharmaceutical sales in Vietnam are estimated at $4.2 billion and are anticipated to increase at a compound annual growth rate of over 12.5 percent to reach around $7.6 billion by 2020. Vietnam represents an attractive opportunity for refrigerated logistics service providers to serve the growing pharmaceutical industry. Trade routes through Vietnam have increased airfreight imports from the United States by an average of 19.2 percent since 2005, providing opportunities for express delivery services within the country. Vietnam’s agribusiness market is expected to grow to $51 billion by 2020. It is estimated that this year, Singapore’s dairy imports from the United States will be around $1 billion, though most of that will be in dry powder form, which does not require refrigeration. The poultry market sources its imports primarily from Brazil and the United States and expects to import 75 metric tons of U.S. poultry this year. The Vietnamese market will import 20,000 metric tons of beef and 3,000 metric tons of pork from the United States this year. The Vietnamese government has taken a proactive step to promote cold chain infrastructure by introducing financial incentives to attract foreign investment. Foreign logistics firms have a strong presence in Vietnam, capturing 80 percent of market share worth $48 billion. While ocean shipping services are dominated by joint ventures, domestic firms mostly handle road-shipping services. Cold chain has been identified as one of the key growth opportunities for foreign investors in Vietnam, an area where there has been significant international investment. Vietnam’s quality of transport infrastructure is ranked 67out of 140 countries in the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness index. Every category of transportation infrastructure has improved since 2011, though the quality of roads and the overall quality of the transport infrastructure is very low. The refrigerated products and services industry would be wise to monitor the state of bulk rail shipping in Vietnam to determine the market opportunity for both refrigerated rail cars and refrigerated warehouses at intermodal links and trans-shipment hubs. The cold storage market in Vietnam is over-built for current operations. “The organized retail sector is just starting to take off, and thus, most players are keeping an eye on the situation. There is potential for companies with a longer-term approach” - Richard Tracy, Global Cold Chain Alliance

Cold Chain for Fruits & Vegetables: Results of a Pilot Study in India
The presentation will share the recent results of a cold chain pilot study in India. It was conducted by the Indian School of Business under guidance from the National Center for Cold-chain Development and Carrier Transicold India to examine the extent to which the cold chain can help increase the value of kinnow, a citrus fruit rich in micronutrients and common to the Punjab region of India and Pakistan, by enabling sales out of season and in distant markets while reducing post-harvest loss and lowering carbon emissions from that loss. The study also provides a general framework for aggregators and distributors to analyze profitability for any crop when using the cold chain.
