Vietnam International Pepper Outlook

“Theme: Sustainability Through Inclusivity”

Vietnam is the leading country in the production and export of Pepper and Cinnamon and is also the 2nd country in the export of Anise. Therefore, issues related to comprehensive sustainability in the spice industry are of great concern. Although there have been many discussions and programs about sustainability, in reality this issue has not been fully implemented. The United Nations development goals include Sustainable Development with an inclusive focus. However, 90% of pepper farmers are small-scale, marginal farmers, lack formal education in farming and are aging. Meanwhile, interest among young farmers is waning due to the lack of economic sustainability in pepper growing. In addition, climate changes and rising global temperatures are also posing major challenges, affecting crop productivity. Faced with this reality, farmers are gradually turning their attention to growing coffee, fruits, vegetables and other crops that bring better economic benefits. Therefore, the theme "Comprehensive Sustainability" was chosen for VIPO 2024 to expand the scope of sustainable development, taking farmers as the focus, overcoming the limits of model farms and traditional thinking.
While a lot has been said about sustainability less has been done in terms of Inclusion which is an integral part. The United Nations development goals include Sustainable Development focusing on Inclusion. 90% of Pepper growing farmers are small and marginal farmers with lack of formal education on farming and are getting Old. The interest amongst the young farmers is dwindling due to the lack of economic sustainability of pepper farming. On top of it adverse weather patterns, overall increase in global temperatures, etc are reducing yields. Growers are focusing on Coffee, fruit and vegetables and other more economically rewarding produce. Therefore this year VIPO has chosen the theme of Sustainability with Inclusivity to go beyond model farms, sustainable programs, RA and all such initiatives to widen the realm of sustainability to the farmers beyond the usual reach.

Survey of pepper gardens

VIPO 2024 will bring a practical and interesting experience as delegates will take a day out trip to visit some pepper plantations in Dak Lak Province - which accounts for 23% of Vietnam's pepper production. Particularly, November when Dak Lak farmers are busy preparing for the new pepper harvest. Visitors can catch sight of green pepper on the strikes before berries get fully mature. At this time, experts can assess the increase or decrease of pepper productivity and production in comparison with previous years throughout the visited area, and then well prepare business plans and strategies.
