Vietnam’s fruit exports to hit record high in 2014

Dragon-fruitsVietnam’s fruit and vegetable exports will likely reach a record $1.2 billion by the end of this year. The projection came after a 32.2% increase to $215 million in the first quarter of this year, according to Viet Nam News.

The key export products were dragon fruit, banana, mango, longans, lychee, star apples, rambutan and grapefruit, the report said, quoting the Viet Nam Fruit and Vegetables Association (Vinafruit)

The shipments have grown more than 30 per cent annually over the past four years, from $460 million in 2010 to $1.04 billion in 2013.

The top five importers are China, Japan, the US, Thailand and Malaysia. Dragon fruit and Vietnamese bananas have emerged as popular products.

Experts have said the country needs to invest in better technologies for processing, post-harvest preservation and  cleaner production methods.

Market diversification away from China, which accounts for 35 per cent of total exports, is also recommended to reduce risks.
