The students of the Faculty of Commerce and Management at RMIT University of Vietnam are Lac Tu Chau, Ha Tuan Nghiep and Le Khac Yen Nhi. They launched their company (AgriBiz) a year ago with the desire to help Vietnamese agricultural industry to stand out in the international market through the transformation and restructuring of the domestic market.
Understanding the difficulties that buyers and suppliers face in the process of finding agricultural products that meet national and international standards, Lac Tu Chau, founder of AgriBiz, was determined to create a database for Vietnam’s key agricultural products. .
“Through our portal, buyers can easily access and verify product agricultural data – the basic information for the raw material purchasing stage before proceeding with the transaction,” says Lac Tu Chau.
Chau believes that AgriBiz benefits Vietnamese farmers as they can reach more customers globally.
Currently, AgriBiz is focused on building a mango database for the South West region because “this product has met the global GAP standard and has an input database”. The team hopes to expand the product line and use blockchain to add more power to the portal.
AgriBiz is one of five winning teams in the recent NINJA Accelerator competition, a start-up support project sponsored by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
