Update: Apr 12, 2017
The Viet Nam Culinary Conservation, Research and Development Centre (CRDC) has been launched to preserve and promote the quintessence of every dish and drink of the country, contributing to elevating the position of the Vietnamese cuisine in the region and world.

The centre is located at 18 Truong Dinh Street, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, licensed by the Ministry of Science and Technology. It will be run by the Culinary Advisory Council and 4 expert sections.

It will focus on building and organizing research programs on Vietnamese-style and special dishes, popularizing and introducing Viet Nam’s tourism images; collect information about Vietnamese traditional dishes and drinks, and continue developing traditional cuisine festivals; and cooperate with other agencies to launch training courses for chefs; and connect domestic tourism agents to open cuisine & tourism products.

Currently, the centre is developing a website in both Vietnamese and English, aiming to provide culinary information for Vietnamese people and foreign visitors. The website is expected to be put into operation by August, 2017.
