A key question for the bottom-up development of the food value chain (FVC) is how agri-food producers, mainly characterised by small-scale and unstable management, can improve their profitability by participating and utilising the chain. This study aims to contribute to economic development and poverty reduction in the agri-food sectors in countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) by assessing the policy implications obtained from case studies of selected FVCs in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Each case study provides essential policy prescriptions: increase productivity and product quality; improve resilience against external shocks; enhance vertical collaboration amongst actors in the FVC; expand market channels particularly of small-scale producers; and improve distribution and production systems to fully utilise resources.
