Tens of tonnes of Vietnamese fresh longan enter Australian market

Large batches of Vietnamese fresh longan, tens of tonnes in size, have been shipped to Australia and entered regions in the south and west of the country over the past few weeks.

Recently, about 7.5 tonnes of longan originating from Mekong Delta provinces arrived in Australia on August 6 while 9 tonnes of longan grown in Hai Duong province are being packed to be sent to Australia to participate in a longan promotion programme held by the Vietnam Trade Office in Australia.

Tens of tonnes, Vietnamese fresh longan, Australian market, Australian consumers, popular products, lower price

Vietnamese longan has characteristic aroma, small seeds and sweetness.

All batches of longan are imported and distributed by 4 Ways Fresh, a company based in Australia specialising in the production and trading of agricultural products.

Director of 4 Ways Fresh Ly Hoang Duy said that Vietnamese fresh longan has created a good impression on Australian consumers and has become one of the popular products in this market.

In addition, Vietnamese longan has a lower price than longan grown in Australia but its quality is somewhat more special thanks to its characteristic aroma, small seeds and sweetness.

Vietnamese longan can also be harvested all year round, helping importers utilise its market advantage.

Duy said that his company has imported approximately 30 tonnes of Vietnamese longan mainly from Mekong Delta provinces since early this year. It is also expected to increase its longan imports to 10 tonnes of longan per week from Northern provinces to meet the consumer demand.

Vietnamese fresh longan was officially allowed to enter Australia in August 2019, becoming the fourth Vietnamese fresh fruit to be present in one of the most demanding markets in the world.
