Unsafe food has become a serious concern in Vietnam. Food safety depends largely on the behaviours of actors in the food chain. For staple products such as vegetables and pork, contamination is most likely to happen in farms and slaughter houses. This thesis focuses on improving our understanding of how the perceptions of vegetable producers and pork processors affect their behaviours regarding food safety. It also measures consumers' benefits, in monetary-equivalent terms, from food safety improvement. This work provides critical insights that can contribute to designing better targeted and more effective food-safety policies in Vietnam.
