Enhancing the value of agricultural product

Adapting to the market is a matter of concern for farmers.

Instead of only selling commercial fish, Lai Tien Son's family in Tu The Hamlet, Dai Phu Commune (Son Duong) came up with the idea of making 'cha ca' (tiny grilled fish patties) for sale.

The 'cha ca' product of Nga Son Cha Ca Cooperative.

Since 2022, Son has invested more than VND200 million in building factories and machinery for making 'cha ca'. He established Nga Son Cha Ca Cooperative and linked to production development with the expectation of bringing the product to consumers both inside and outside the province.

Currently, the 'cha ca' product of the cooperative is supplying to a number of restaurants in Hanoi, Ha Giang and some schools in Son Duong District.

From smart agricultural production, it will create high quality agricultural products, contributing to the development of the province's commodity agricultural production in depth.
