Australia's top ten export destinations – Vietnam

Australian fruit, nut and vegetable exports

Vietnam has become Australia’s third-largest trading market for horticulture, behind China and Hong Kong. 

Demand for imported and premium foods in Vietnam is driven by:

  • The large population of nearly 100 million people
  • Rising incomes – 30 per cent of the population is expected to have middle income status by 2026
  • Consumer interest in health and nutrition
  • The strong food and drink culture
  • Increased use of e-commerce and home delivery.

While Vietnam is a strong producer of fresh produce, with a large variety of local fruits and vegetables, Australian exporters can benefit from the strong perception of our produce as being high-quality.

Opportunity can also be seen in our counter-seasonality to our northern hemisphere competitors, and our relative geographic proximity.
