Gherkin came to Vietnam from the 90s, and not until 2010, for 20 years, Vietnamese gherkin is mostly supplied to Russian and Eastern European markets. Through through state-owned companies, Russian experts brought gherkin tree to plant in Vietnam. Thanks to gherkin, farmers in northern Vietnam has a new work in the years when there are not many jobs to do.
Since 2010, Vietnam gherkin has been known about more and more, particularly through raw material shortage crisises. However, high-end markets have not chosen Vietnam as a stable and sustainable supply. There’s no stability for pickles factories and gherkin growers. Prices were always precarious, farmers' income depends heavily on traders and agents.
Building a factory in 2011, Hagimex always aims to develop sustainable materials sources. In our own material areas, we signed a contract with commitment to purchase all the output materials from farmers. The farmers are not only our partners but also friends. There are farmers working with and growing gherkins for Hagimex until their age is too high to work on the field anymore.
Our company currently has supplied high quality products to demanding markets all over the world, including the US, EU, Australia, and Korea, etc. We have contributed to bringing Vietnamese gherkin products fully integrated with the world. As a result, we have increased purchasing prices of raw material, in larger quantities, to help Vietnamese farmers improve their incomes.
German, American and Korean customers, etc, visit, make friends with our farmers and together with us, build a safe food supply chain.
We hope that you join our ecosystem and together make the world better!
