In recent years, many foreign fruit exporters have entered Vietnam to take advantage of local people’s rising popularity of imported fruit in the country.
Last year, the total amount of foreign fruit consumption in the country reached 1.7 trillion USD, and is expected to continue to increase.
In the last three years, many foreign fruit exporters have been looking for import partners in Vietnam.
Last week, the three biggest grape growers from Sunraysia, Australia, representing the Australian Table Grape Association Inc, and the Australian trade agency (Austrade) promoted their high-quality fresh grapes to consumers in Hanoi and HCM City.
Vietnam is the 7th largest import market for fresh grapes in Australia. Australian grape export companies have organised many activities to promote their products to Vietnamese customers, according to Jeff Scott, director of Australian Table Grape Association Inc.
Besides grapes, cherries are one of Australia’s major fruit exports. Last year, Australia sold almost 350 tonnes of cherries to Vietnam.
In addition, Vietnam has become an ideal market for New Zealand’s apples.
New Zealand began exporting fruits to Vietnam after the direct flight from Auckland to HCM City opened in 2016.
Dinh Ngoc Thuy, deputy director of Klever Fruits, which specialises in importing fruits, said that consumer demand for clean and delicious fruits was increasing.
The company has imported seasonal fruits from South Africa, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the US and Chile to meet the demands of customers, Thuy said.
Nguyen Huy Hoang, commercial director of market research company Katar Worldpanel, said that Vietnamese customers were focusing on nutrition and food safety.
Each household spends nearly 4.5 million VND (193 USD) per month for fresh food, he added.
The biggest fruit exporter to Vietnam is Thailand, with more than 40 percent, while China is second with 24 percent.
In addition, fruits from the US, Chile and the Republic of Korea are also popular in the market.-VNS/VNA
