Van Duc cooperative is currently the largest safe vegetable area in Hanoi. It is selected by MARD as a standard model of supply chain management from production to consumption throughout the country. Eight kinds of clean vegetable products from Van Duc cooperative achieved a 4-star OCOP rating. The vegetable products have also been exported to Taiwan (China) and South Korea for many years.

From 2015-2020, MARD coordinated with the Hanoi People's Committee and 21 localities across the country to implement a program to develop safe vegetable and meat supply chains in Hanoi. Some 786 safe food supply chains have been created. However, many quality and safe products did not reach distribution centers or consumers in the capital and the whole country.

In order to promote the achievements, take advantage of the opportunities and overcome the challenges caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, MARD and the Hanoi People's Committee agreed to implement the joint program "Ensure food safety, improve the quality and value of the supply chain of agriculture, forestry and fishery products between Hanoi and other provinces and cities in the country from 2021-2025”.
