Postharvest practices increase vegetable exports in Bangladesh

Exports of cabbage, cauliflower and other vegetables from Jessore, Bangladesh are increasing as farmers use improved postharvest handling methods to protect the quality and freshness of their produce.

The VINESA Project: Access to Markets

Farmers are forming groups, learning how to grow, harvest and deliver quality produce for high-value markets, and finding new markets to tap through the VINESA project.


When people in Tanzania began producing vegetables for market sale through the VINESA project, many decided to include them in their own meals. Local diets are now more diverse and nutritious.

Postharvest methods put into practice

Through the USAID Postharvest Project, farmers in Bangladesh have learned simple but effective methods to protect their vegetables after the harvest to retain quality and ensure more of the crop is available to consumers.
