Staying healthy is currently “the vogue” in Vietnam, and Danang is no exception. According to a 2018 survey, the majority of urban residents reported that health remains as their top concern when they make purchasing decisions. However, navigating the intricacies of a healthy lifestyle is not an easy task. Not everyone knows about micronutrients, counts calories intake or reads food labels – and that’s fine too. We are here to help, starting from the most basic step: locating the top 5 healthy stores in Danang to shop for healthy, natural products.
Yes, eating clean matters
Last year, a survey conducted by the market research firm Kantar displayed a surprising figure: up to 79% of Vietnamese in big cities care about the quality of their food and express willingness to pay more for high-quality products. This attitude is seen in Danang as more and more plant-based restaurants, organic stores and fitness centers are being launched each month. Along with this, the city is gravitating towards a healthier lifestyle, with its People’s Committee taking the first steps to ensure food sanitation with a master plan for sustainable agricultural development. In this plan, the local authorities claim that by 2020, they will triple the amount of land dedicated to hygienic production of food. Danang’s vision of providing responsibly sourced food to the community is further advanced by various independent stores across the city. Here are the top 5 healthy stores in Danang that are pioneering this movement:
