Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam’s tuna exports to Greece increased 104 percent year-on-year to reach nearly 1.8 million USD by the end of July 2019, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).
The export value of canned processed tuna to the EU accounted for more than 94 percent of Vietnam’s total tuna exports to the market.
Greek customers tend to favour Italian canned tuna. However, since 2016, demand for such high-quality products has been declining due to price hikes.
Therefore, Greece has increased imports of canned tuna from Asian countries with Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and Turkey being the biggest suppliers./.
