Successful avocado information event organized in Dak Lak Province

11 July 2008

DAK LAK - A special DAKADO information day (D-Day) was organized, to share the experiences of the DAKADO project with the main stakeholders of the avocado sector.

About 100 people participated in the event which was covered by several national and regional TV stations and newspapers. During the seminar, presentations described how the DAKADO brand was created, and how the DAKADO value chain was formed. Technical presentations and discussions about avocado cultivation practices and post-harvest operational procedures were also made. To promote the use of avocado in Buon Ma Thuot city, the capital of Dak Lak Province, an avocado cooking competition was organized in which hotel and restaurant chefs participated.

 

For many participants in the seminar it was the first time they had seen and taste avocado as used in salads or as the main ingredient for a sauce. To date, most Vietnamese consume avocados only in milk shakes.
