A global Dutch-Vietnamese agriculture sector based in Vietnam
The Fruit Republic (TFR) was established by a strong team of Dutch and Vietnamese fresh produce professionals who have worked together for over ten years in the agriculture sector of Vietnam. Together they developed an innovative contract farming system that includes hundreds of smallholder farmers and established two modern HACCP certified processing facilities in two distinct agro-climatic zones, each with a unique sourcing area: the tropical Mekong Delta and the temperate highlands of Dalat.
Successful spread to global market
TFR has state-of-the-art pack houses in Can Tho and DaLat, and distribution centres in HCMC, HaNoi and the Netherlands. Since its foundation in 2009, TFR has developed into the leading fresh produce exporter of Vietnam. In a period of five years, The Fruit Republic has successfully developed the world’s only year-round supply program of GLOBALGAP certified pomelo, seedless limes and dragon fruit. TFR is also the first company to supply certified organic lime from Asia.
More and more supermarket chains in Europe and Asia are switching to this year-round concept of weekly arrivals of top quality produce from Vietnam. All fruit and vegetables from TFR are sourced from its own GAP certified contract farmer. TFR is committed to offer both our international and our domestic customers reliable supply programs of fresh fruit and vegetables that meet stringent international food safety and quality standards.
Activities in Dutch community in Vietnam
TFR sponsored the Dutch Days in Can Tho in November 9 and 10, 2018. The Dutch Days are an initiative of the Dutch Embassy and Consulate General, to celebrate the 45 years of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the Netherlands. Earlier editions of this event took place successfully in Da Nang, Da Lat and Hai Phong.
