BioTrade project in Vietnam is funded by European Union aiming at introducing the concept of BioTrade to Vietnamese market. BioTrade concept is about sustainability in socio-economic and environmental terms.
The BioTrade products introduced in this portal are products of certified quality, ranging from ingredients for food, cosmetics, to pharmaceutical industry. The making of these products does not cause harm to the environment but brings about socio-economic benefits to local communities where they are sourced.
BioTrade initiative was launched by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in 1996 to support the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
BioTrade refers to those activities of collection, production, transformation, and commercialization of goods and services derived from native biodiversity under the criteria of environmental, social and economic sustainability.
