In the recent months, the export is recovering strongly in spite of "Zero Covid" by China. Regardless, fruit exports tend to recover and increase in the last months of the year. According to the Vietnam Customs, the export value of Vietnam's vegetables and fruits in October 2022 reached $309.7 million, up 22.9% compared to last month and up 28.1% compared to October 2021.



With the above data, it is very clear that the export of vegetables and fruits is continuing to recover from August until now. Previously, in July, fruit and vegetable exports still had a negative growth rate when reaching only $250 million, down 5.7% compared to July 2021, and contributed to the reduction of fruit and vegetable exports in the first 7 months of the year by 15.8%.

In August, vegetable and fruit exports began to recover with a relatively high growth compared to August 2021 (up 19.7%). In September, fruit and vegetable exports still grew, although the increase decreased significantly. By October, vegetable and fruit exports increased sharply again as mentioned above.

The prosperity of fruit and vegetable exports first comes from China - the largest market. In October 2022, the export value of vegetables and fruits to China reached $151.7 million, up 44.2% compared to October 2021. Generally, in the first 10 months of the year, the export of vegetables and fruits to the Chinese market reached $1.2 billion, down 25.8% over the same period in 2021. Although this decrease is still large, it has improved significantly compared to the first 8 months of the year (down to 32.4%).

It is clear that the prospect of exporting vegetables and fruits to the Chinese market has had many positive signs. Such as durian fruit has been exported through official channels to China since September 2022. After durian, the opportunity to promote banana exports is opening when The Protocol on the export of fresh bananas from Vietnam to China was also recently signed between the two countries. The strong shift from unofficial to official export for the Chinese market will contribute to promoting the positive growth of the fruit and vegetable industry.

In addition, in the first 10 months of 2022, vegetables and fruits exported to other markets grew well, such as The US reached $219 million, up 18.8% over the same period in 2021; Thailand reached $153.4 million, up 26.4%; Japan reached $141.3 million, up 6%.

In November 2022, fruit and vegetable exports continued to grow well, estimated at $340 million, up 9.8% compared to October 2022 and up 30.5% compared to November 2021. As a consequence, in the 11 months of 2022, the export value of vegetables and fruits is estimated at $3.1 billion, down 4.9% over the same period in 2021.

Followed by processed fruits and vegetables, exports in the first 10 months of 2022 reached $841.8 million, up 12% over the same period in 2021. Processed products are the trend of the market in the coming time. The Covid-19 pandemic shows that the supply chain of fresh perishable food is only suitable for domestic consumption. Processed foods can be preserved for a long time to better meet the requirements of international consumers.
