Vietnam promotes export of avocados to US market

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the country paid US$ 2.35 billion in 2018 to import 1.04 million tons of avocados, which were almost consumed in big supermarkets.

In order to enter the US avocado fruit must be controlled in the supply chain from production to distribution and food safety assurance. In addition, the export of avocado to the United States must meet the standards of maturity, color, weight, diameter, undamaged and clean fruit, not exposed to moist environments, etc.

Vietnam currently has many avocado varieties all year round. However, the value of Vietnamese avocado products is still low due to limitations in the application of science and technology, the small production scale. In addition, the brand and geographical indications have not yet been built.
