Most of wholesale markets in Hanoi were built a long time ago, their structures are degraded and unable to meet fire protection requirements. In addition, the control of food safety and hygiene in these markets is inadequate.

Hanoi targets to build another six wholesale markets with areas from 20 to 30 ha each, from now to 2020, with orientation to 2030, the government portal reported, citing the Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade.

These wholesale markets will be located in the districts having the potential for farm production and smooth transport infrastructure connected with the city centre and surrounding areas.

Accordingly, these wholesale markets will be built with modern international logistics standards and able to meet regional commodity exchange demands, ensure environmental hygiene, food safety control and modern distribution channels.

In recent years, Hanoians have high demand for agricultural products. They consume an average of 890,000 tonnes of rice, 139,000 tonnes of pork, 42,000 tonnes of chicken, 900 million eggs, 54,000 tonnes of fresh seafood and 900,000 tonnes of vegetables per year.

Most of wholesale markets in Hanoi were built a long time ago, so their structures are now degraded and unable to meet fire protection requirements. In addition, the control of food safety and hygiene in these markets is inadequate.

Vietnam’s capital is now home to two major wholesale markets along with a series of traditional wet markets such as the Yen So fish market, the Ha Vi poultry market, and the Van Quan farm produce night market.
