The figures show a year-on-year increase of 22.2 per cent in volume and 17.3 per cent in value, despite the average pepper export price falling over 4 per cent to $6,554 per tonne.

The US and Germany were the largest importers of Vietnamese pepper during the reviewed period. Demands from those two markets increased sharply, with their export growth reaching 93.5 per cent and 20.4 per cent, respectively, in volume, and 84.1 per cent and 15.2 per cent in value on a year-on- year basis.

The Vietnam Pepper Association  predicted that this year the country would harvest about 90,000 – 95,000 tonnes, from 60,000 hectares of land under pepper cultivation.

In 2012, the country exported 119,000 tonnes of pepper, worth $808 million to more than 80 countries and territories worldwide.
