Coconut exports

This article was originally published in Foodnews

VIETNAM’s exports of coconuts and coconut products are expected to be worth more than USD80 million this year, accounting for nearly one fifth of the country’s total fruit exports, the Vietnam Fruit and Vegetables Association has said. Vietnam News reported that in the first seven months of the year, exports increased by 213% toUSD55.5 million. The major coconut product exports are copra and canned coconut milk. China, Thailand, Egypt, Germany and the Netherlands were the largest buyers during the period, and China alone accounted for USD31 million, up 192% year-on-year, mostly from copra and fresh coconuts. Exports of coconut milk were worth USD5.6 million in total, while fresh coconut exports were reported to have risen sharply following the adoption of a preservation method that keeps them fresh for up to six weeks. Vietnam harvests 720 million coconuts per year, mostly in the Mekong Delta and central coastal provinces.
