Abstract
Orange is one of the world’s most important economic fruit crops. And in Tuyen Quang, Vietnam, orange is local tree that have been planted for many generations. The study analyzed the supply chain and the value chain of orange in Tuyen Quang, compared to the supply chain and the orange value chain in industrialized nations, and have seen that the the orange value chain in the province has not developed yet. All products are consumed as fresh fruits, without processing of products from orange. Consumption of orange fruit is only in the domestic market, no export activities. The linkages between the actors in the chain have not been deep and inefficient. Harvest and transport fresh fruit was mostly done by hand. Preservation, packaging, refrigeration and processing activities have not been implemented. These lead to high post-harvest losses and selling of orange fruit is still difficult and seasonal. SWOT analysis was used too, and some strategic solutions were identified to develop the orange value chain.
