Spanish meat exports to Vietnam on the rise

Pork exported from Spain to Vietnam grew 53.7% year-on-year in 2018, according to new figures from trade body Interporc.

In volume terms, it has exported 13,004 tons to Vietnam, which created a turnover of €11.2m, marking a 34% rise year-on-year, according to Datacomex research. Vietnam is the fifth largest consumer of pigs in the world and the fifth Asian market in consumption per capita behind China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea.

An Interporc statement said: “The Vietnamese pork market is a very interesting market for Spanish products, due to the entry into force of the Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Vietnam; as well as the growing trend of consumption of this type of meat in the market, which is expected to have an annual rate of increase of more than 6%.”
