In 2015, Thuc made a loan to invest in more than 3,000 square meters of net house and membrane house. He suffered the lost in the first crop of melon grown in coir scaffold due to lack of experience.

Later, he joined many training classes to study the technique, grasp and correctly follow the procedures of seedling, building tank and installing the drip irrigation. To prevent the disease, he uses bio product and trap in line with “4 correct” principle: Correct product, correct dose, correct time and correct method.

Starting up in 2017, Tien borrowed capital to hire land, invest in building 400 square meter net house; established Xuong Giang Safe Sprout Production Facility then introduced the product to each restaurant and supermarket.

The customers shared that it is hard to find the source of safe food product with clear origin because the supply is not really abundant and the linkage between production and consumption is not effective.
