Abstract

We estimate the demand for different varieties of chicken in Viet Nam. We find that higher incomes are linked to consumption of traditionally produced free-range chicken; and that, in general, there is price substitution between different varieties of chicken. These findings indicate that quality plays a large role in demand for chicken in Viet Nam.
