Asian Organic Agricultural Research and Development Institute (AOI)
“Striving for community health and sustainable development”
Worldwide there are 2.3 million organic farmers, 43.7 million ha of certified organic land and US$ 80 billion in consumer purchases of organic (IFOAM, 2020).
The AOI Institute is the first institute in charge of organic agriculture research and development in Vietnam. The Institute has accompanied with businesses and farmers in this field to contribute significantly in the IFOAM’s community. In the "start up" time, the Institiute has overcome many difficulties and challenges to gradually expand the organic models from the Mekong Delta to the Central Highlands and gradually to many areas across the country.

He is one of the first scientists to initiate organic agriculture. He has experienced many difficulties and challenges to successfully build an organic rice model of small-scale farmer groups linking enterprises in Chau Thanh district (Tra Vinh) from 2015. Until now, organic agriculture has spread to many other places in the country.
