The information was revealed yesterday afternoon by Mr. Dam Van Hung, owner of Huong Mien Tay fruit business establishment in Mo Cay Bac, Ben Tre.

According to Mr. Hung, green peel pomelo price now swings around VND55,000 a kilogram in the delta and export price is higher than that.

His establishment has sold to the Chinese market 20-40 tons on average a day, totaling 1,000 tons since early this year.

Some European countries and Canada will stop importing Vietnamese pomelos if the price exceeds VND40,000-50,000 a kilogram saying expensive. Meanwhile, China has accepted high price and kept buying. Mr. Hung commented that is a strange thing profiting Mekong Delta farmers.

Many people have been hesitated about trading with Chinese partners because they have been easy to meet with risks. Therefore, Mr. Hung said he had carefully learnt about and chosen prestigious partners. In return, he also ensures the fruit’s quality and delivers goods on schedule.
