Japanese pears hit Vietnamese market shelves

VOV.VN - Pears grown in Shimotsuma, Ibaraki prefecture in Japan have been granted an export license for Vietnam, effectual from August 29.

Accordingly, 1,008 boxes (weighing 10kg each) have been quarantined and transported to Vietnam. Around 160 tons of pears will be exported from Ibaraki prefecture to the Southeast Asian nation from now to the end of this year.

According to the Shimotsuma fruit federation, Vietnam’s market for imported fruit is developing strongly at the moment. The government has encouraged the development of the market for the past 10 years but the import volume of pears into Vietnam had remained relatively modest.

In addition to Vietnam, Shimotsuma’s pears are being promoted for export to regional neighbours, Thailand and Malaysia.
