Processing of Hai Duong “thieu” lychee for export at the factory of Ameii Vietnam Joint Stock Company.

The two treatment facilities are owned by Ameii Vietnam Joint Stock Company and Rong Do Limited Liability Company, featuring three processing chambers, each with a capacity of 2.5-3 tonnes/batch.

To date, Japan has recognised a total of four lychee processing facilities for export to this market, with five chambers operated by four local units, helping to increase the total processing capacity to 35-40 batches/day, many times higher than the processing capacity last year.

In 2020, only from 7.5-8 tonnes of lychee were treated each day before leaving for Japan.

Safety procedures have also been strengthened so that plant quarantine officers can rest assured to work in the current complicated Covid-19 situation, not to affect lychee exports.

Regarding the quality of this year's lychee crop, Japan customers have rated it as having a higher quality than that of 2020. Lychee exported to Japan in the past few days has been sold out in only 2-3 hours.

Currently, Thanh Ha early-ripen lychee in Hai Duong’s Thanh Ha District has consumed about 65% of production and is expected to produce about 30,000 tonnes, while main season lychee are expected to reach about 25,000 tonnes this year, an increase of 15,000 tonnes compared to 2020.

The main lychee season will begin from June 1 and reach its peak of harvesting from June 5 in Hai Duong.

This year, thanks to the promotion of sales channels, Hai Duong lychee prices are higher. For lychees produced under the export process to Japan and Singapore, businesses are purchasing at VND7,000-10,000 per kg higher compared to lychees grown outside the export areas.
