Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), both entities have pledged dedicated joint effort towards promoting advanced shrimp farming methods and science-backed shrimp nutrition practices in Vietnam, with the objective of fostering a robust and sustainable shrimp sector for the country.

A strategic alliance for real and transformative changes

As the leading expert in aquaculture nutrition on the market, Grobest Vietnam has consistently upheld sustainable development as the guiding principle in all of its operational, research, and product development plans. In the past year, Grobest’s shrimp farming model and products have successfully reached more shrimp farmers with the support from the National Agricultural Extension Center, forging a valuable partnership that enhances agricultural outreach and impact. Accordingly, this is the driving factor leading to the partnership agreement between Grobest Vietnam and NAPC to further solidify their joint commitment to supporting Vietnamese shrimp farmers. This collaboration aims to fortify farmers’ resilience and competitiveness through the adoption of innovative technology and strategic planning, enabling the country’s shrimp industry to regain prominence on the global stage and stand firm against major rising competitors like Ecuador and India.

We believe that sustainable growth and increased profitability for farmers are paramount to the long-term success of Vietnam’s shrimp industry.”

For his part, Mr. Le Quoc Thanh, Director of the National Agricultural Extension Center particularly emphasized the critical role of this partnership. “It is important to note that the social impact will be significantly heightened once state resources allocated to the promotion of the agriculture sector receive additional support from international organizations and community-based networks, as well as private enterprises. We hope that organizations and outstanding enterprises like Grobest Vietnam can collaborate effectively to enhance communication and reach out to industry producers in general, and shrimp farming households in particular, to deliver the most positive and beneficial solutions to the community.”
